L'arble Dans la Peinture de Paysage en France 1850 et 1920
|In this exhibition, the main theme is for exploring the development of
French modern landscape painting through the motif,“Trees” From the ancient
period, “Tree” in the paintings were given mlti-roles, and painted as “Tree
of Life” in the Old testament, “Yggdrasil”in the mythologies in the North
Europe, and “the Tree of Jesse” presenting the genealogy of Jesus Christ.
In the history of French paintings, landscapes have been a part of background
of paintings. However, the artists of Ecole de Barbizon who loved to paint
the nature itself, focused on “Threes” as a main motif of their paintings.
And then, trees become appropriate subject for impressionists and neo-impressionists
to represent light and shadow. Moreover, Post-impressionist and the artists
of Fauvism developed the abstract art by regarding trees as the element
to compose their paintitngs. There are 113 master-pieces in this exhibition
from the museums which is mainly in France and the private collection.
You will find how Trees have been painted by the artists of romanticism,
Barvison, Impressionism and fauvism, and how it have been used for enhancing
