– Harunobu: Poet of the Feminine is the first ever solo exhibition in France dedicated to eighteenth century artist Suzuki Harunobu, acknowledged as a master of color and brocade and one of the preeminent interpreters of the Japanese print. Among the most innovative of the Ukiyo-e print makers, his ability to manipulate pigment in the print making process allowed him to become among the first artists to emboss his work in a rainbow of colors when other artists were limited to only two or three shades. Particularly celebrated for his sophisticated representations of beautiful young women engaged in everyday activities, the 44 prints on display have all been chosen specially from the Guimet’s permanent collection and present an exceptional opportunity to view rare examples from the museum’s trove of 4,000 individual Japanese prints which are seldom publicly on view due to their fragile nature.
