The Artalroc in Escaldes-Engordany opens a new exhibition entitled “Japan, the footprint of water”

On October 23, the Artalroc in Escaldes-Engordany in Andorra (Pyrenees) opens a new exhibition entitled “Japan, the footprint of water”. The 190 photographs that will be on display, most of them hand-colored, belong to the Guimet National Museum of Asian Art in Paris (France).

“Japan, the footprint of water” is a representative exhibition of Japan during the second half of the nineteenth century. The public will see works by Japanese and also Western photographers at a time when it was not so easy to enter the country and move with often heavy and imposing material.
