Ando Hiroshigé, The temple Kinryuzan at Asakusa, series of «100 Famous Views of Edo», Print, Japan, 1856.

Japan-Japonismes. Inspired Objects, 1867-2018 highlights this exceptional collection of ancient Japanese art, one of the most important in France, compared with Western Japanese creations. The exhibition, enriched by loans from institutions, creators and special collections especially from Japan, says how much this mutual fascination has had expressions for more than a century and a half, and which gives, even today, all its vigor to the imagination of the artists.
