"Hikari: Expression of Light in Works of Art"
Menard Art Museum
By TOMOKO HORI
Light — sunlight, moonlight, starlight, even artificial indoor lighting — is often one of the most important elements of an artist's work. Since the energy-saving concerns raised by the Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant disaster, our general awareness and appreciation of light has been also heightened.
This exhibition focuses on the use, depiction and interpretation of light through some 70 examples of Western paintings, nihonga (Japanese-style painting) and craft pieces. It includes "La Blonde au Gilet Bleu" (1922) by Pierre Bonnard, which is being shown in Japan for the first time; Jan. 2-April 1.
Menard Art Museum; (0568) 75-5787; 5-250 Komaki, Komaki-shi, Aichi; Iwakura Station, Meitetsu Inuyama Line. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. ¥800. Closed Mon. museum.menard.co.jp
