Hotel de Caumont Art Center's collection
Hokusai, Hiroshige, Utamaro ... The Great Masters of JapanThe Georges Leskowicz Collection.
Georges Leskowicz is today in Europe one of the largest collectors of ukiyo-e Japanese prints, "images of the floating world". The quality of its collection could easily compete with more remarkable Japanese art collections from the Edo era around the world. The Hotel de Caumont-Center requests more than fifty prints and displays an important set of surimono, exhibited for the very first time. Complemented by the preparatory drawings and various themes such as portraiture, the genre scene, the landscape and natural motifs, the selection allows to discover the ancestral, rich, colorful and fascinating artistic universe of Japan of old.
