The Painters’ Eyes, the Sculptors’ Hands, at Bridgestone Museum of Art, Kyobashi, Chuo-ku, Tokyo
18th January - 13th April, 2014 | Bridgestone Museum of Art, Kyobashi, Tokyo
The painter and the sculptor. The painter paints pictures, the sculptor creates sculptures, and some artists, such as Edgar Degas, find both sculpture and painting to be vital media for artistic expression. Viewing paintings and sculptures together makes the distinctive features of each stand out. That is why, in the second half of the 19th century, there were important experiments in which paintings and sculptures were shown together. One example is the 1889 Monet-Rodin Exhibition at the Georges Petit Gallery, where paintings by Claude Monet and sculptures by Auguste Rodin were exhibited side by side.
When art critic Octave Mirbeau saw that exhibition, he praised it, saying, “They have shown us these two forms of art, painting and sculpture, in this century’s most outstanding and extraordinary way.”
Paintings and sculptures, 160 of them, are the focus of this exhibition; all are works are from the collection of the Bridgestone Museum of Art. While enjoying the stimulating contrasts they present, please also take in the standing exhibition of works by Rodin, Bourdelle, Zadkine, Archipenko, and Brancusi in our sculpture gallery.
