Cubism’s groundbreaking inception by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque revolutionised art in the early 20th century, offering a geometric perspective that birthed abstract art and Surrealism. The Centre Pompidou in Paris, globally revered for its modern art collection, brings this transformative movement to Japan with over fifty works making their debut appearance here.
Featuring masterpieces from the likes of Picasso and Braque, the exhibition showcases around 140 works, encapsulating the movement’s rich diversity. Highlights include Braque’s impactful ‘Grand Nu’ and Picasso’s exemplary ‘Femme assise dans un fauteuil’. Moreover, Robert Delaunay’s magnificent ‘La Ville de Paris’ will grace Japan for the first time, alongside exemplary works by Chagall.
With a kaleidoscopic showcase of Cubism’s most influential artists including Constantin Brancusi, Marc Chagall, Sonia Delaunay and Amedeo Modigliani, this event marks the first comprehensive showcase of Cubism in Japan in fifty years.
