Exhibition of Japanese artwork Surimono “Katsushika Hokusai and his circle. Masterpieces of Japanese Surimono - Hidden Beauty ”
Buzau County Museum, a culture and research institution operating under the authority of Buzău County Council, announces the opening of the international exhibition „Katsushika Hokusai and his circle. Masterpieces of Japanese Surimono - Hidden Beauty ”, curated by Vasilii Chesauri and Alexandru Anghel.
Organized in partnership with Art Expo SIA, from Latvia, the exhibition remains open to the public during the period March 3 - June 5, 2022.
The exhibition project includes 51 graphic works, masterpieces of Japanese art Surimono, made by great masters, such as: Katsushika Hokusai, Totoya Hokkei, Kubo Shunman, Yashima Gakutei, Yanagawa Shigenobu, Ryûryûkyo Shinsai, Katsushika Hokuun, Matora Ōishi, Kitagawa Utamaro, Utagawa Toyohiro and Utagawa Kuninao. There are also two works by the Impressionists, owned by Arsène Alexandre.
The public has the opportunity to meet original surimonos, to see their seemingly hidden beauty, as well as the procedures that were used to create them.
Many embossing techniques and associated visual illusions, applied in surimono materials, require a focused examination of the work as a whole, but also of all its tiny nuances, each containing symbols and constantly complementing the visual sense, constantly enriching it. Surimono is Japan's unique contribution to world culture, and the exhibition demonstrates the unique versatility and beauty of the masterpieces that have survived to the present day.
