'Color Magic: From the Taguchi Collection and the Ando Collection'

THE MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, GIFU

by Yukari Tanaka

Jan. 9-March 22

Color and form in art are focused on in this thematic exhibition, which draws from two major collections — the Taguchi Collection and the Ando Collection — both housed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Gifu.

Visitors can experience the influence of colors on emotions, how they have the ability to inspire happiness and positivity or be calming and relaxing, and observe the way artists manipulate them to create atmospheric works.

With exhibits ranging from postwar modern to contemporary, highlights include colorful abstract paintings by Atsuko Tanaka, Shinpei Sakakura, Genichiro Inokuma and Shusaku Arakawa, and figurative works by Tsuguharu Foujita.
