About

GNYP Gallery is delighted to present the exhibition Kour Pour in Dialogue with Yoshitoshi. In the second exhibition room at Knesebeckstrasse GNYP Gallery presents a dialogue between Kour Pour and the 19th-century Japanese artist Yoshitoshi. Both artists have used the Ukiyo-e printing technique to make their works. In the series titled One Hundred Aspects of the Moon (1885-1892), exhibited in the gallery, Yoshitoshi depicted scenes from the life in the 19th century Japan, inhabited by beautiful geishas, knights and their servants. In this period of (art) history Europe became fascinated by Japan and Ukiyo-e prints that had captured the interest of many artists such as Van Gogh, Degas, Gauguin, and Toulouse-Lautrec. The Western artists started to use the characteristics of Ukiyo-e such as lack of central composition and shadows, cropping of pictorial planes, and clean contours that have been incorporated into Western art for good.
