One of Tokyo's more niche exhibitions of Western art this autumn takes place at the Sompo Japan museum high above Shinjuku. The protagonist is French Symbolist painter Eugène Carrière (1849-1906), a virtuoso of the monochrome palette and an artistic academic who spent much of his later life teaching and developing the theoretical basis of painting techniques. Marking 110 years since the death of this giant of fin-de-siècle Parisian society, the exhibition consists of around 80 pieces sourced mainly from private collections and centred on everyday themes like family and children, expressed with a subtlety and warmth that's said to have influenced the likes of Matisse and Picasso.
