Exhibition: The art of love at the time of the Geishas

It’s within the framework of its Art and Eroticism season in the East, that the Pinacothèque in Paris welcomes a collection of erotic Japanese prints. Created in the Edwardian era, between 1603 and 1867, these artworks were commissioned by the upper class. Fruits of a number of fantasies, these works were especially collected in secret by some of the greatest artistic personalities, like Gustav Klimt and Emile Zola. This new retrospective also takes a look at contemporary Japan, by showing the heritage of this current period of Art, particularly with manga.

Exhibition "The art of love at the time of the Geishas”, from the 6th November 2014 until the 15th February 2015.
Open every day from 10.30am-6.30pm.
Closed on Tuesday.
Open late on Wednesday and Friday until 8.30pm.
Standard price: €14,50 / Reduced price: €12,50.
