Foujita, the cosmopolitan
PARIS – Foujita? Japan and France, of course! The former was his native country, where he returned during the war. The latter was his adopted country, where he met success during the Roaring Twenties, fell in love and was illuminated by Catholicism (as visitors recently saw at the musée Maillol). But there is more to Foujita! The man, with his ever-present bowl haircut and his cats, also travelled far, especially to Latin America, during the forties. This exhibition, one of the events to close the “Japonismes” celebrations, aims at giving a full panorama of the artist.
• Foujita at the Maison de la culture du Japon, from 16 January to 16 March 2019.
