Chardin Exhibition

Chardin Exhibition

Art critic and philosopher Denis Diderot hailed Jean Siméon Chardin as the 'great magician', in tribute to the skill with which the painter captured the lives of the bourgeoisie in 18th century France. Despite being mostly self-taught, Chardin developed an impressively realistic style in his paintings, assisted by his preference for naturalistic lighting and understated colours. This marks the first-ever Japanese exhibition devoted solely to the artist, presenting a selection of work curated by Pierre Rosenberg, a renowned expert on Chardin's oeuvre.
