On October 23, the Artalroc in Escaldes-Engordany 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.
“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.
The space of the Artalroc is divided into 5 atmospheres: waterfalls, rivers, lakes, coastlines and disasters. Water is shown in all its richness and strength. A dozen traditional prints (ukiyo-e) complete the exhibition which will be open until January 13, 2019.
