Fujita at the Maillol Museum; a tribute to the most Parisian of Japanese painters
This is undoubtedly one of the essential exhibitions of this early spring. Foujita; Painting in the Roaring Twenties shines a spotlight on the astonishing talent of the Japanese artistic icon of the Roaring Twenties, Leonard Tsuguharu Foujita. Fifty years after his death, the Musée Maillol pays tribute to the luminous and rare work created during the painter’s Montparnasse period. The story of this unique creator emerges through major works on loan from prestigious institutions and museums and a hundred rarely seen items from some 45 private collections in Japan, the United States and Europe. The exhibition invites you to discover a surprising artist with a unique style, from his beginnings in Japan through his ascent to fame and the discovery of his work, a journey that will lead to the creation of a flamboyant persona, an eccentric dandy whose career evolved between two cultures.
