Japan Comes Closer

05.03.2009

In the Excursion-Exposition Centre of the “People’s House” of the State M.A. Sholokhov Museum-Reserve  on March, 5, 2009 the exhibition “Japan, Remote and Near” was opened. This time the guest of the Museum-Reserve   has been the Azov Historical-Archaeological and Paleontological Museum-Reserve.

The collection, brought from Azov, numbers more than 50 reproductions of the well-known Japanese artists’ works made in silk stencil printing technique on the traditional vasi paper.

The exhibited paintings are harmoniously supplemented with drawings representing the favourite genres of the Japanese art: graceful beauties, kabuki actors, scenic landscapes of the Rising Sun Country. There are widely displayed ritual articles devoted to children holidays, as well as Japanese dolls – the best masters’ works.

The collection, brought by the Azov Museum-Reserve, is a gift of the organizers of the exhibition “Mammoths” which was exposed in 1997-1999 in the tourist centre “Russian Village” in the prefecture of Niighata (Japan), guided by Komoghava Kadzuko and Nitta Kiyomi, the head and the deputy head of the Euro-Asian Scientific and Cultural Research Institute, Doctors of Science, respectively.

The exhibition also displays the exhibits of the State M.A. Sholokhov Museum-Reserve depository and the articles from the private collections of S.M. Sholokhova, M.M. Sholokhov and M.M. Sholokhova, reminding of the writer’s visit to Japan in the May of 1966 on the invitation of the Japanese Literary Association. Among them there are the presents of M.A. Sholokhov from the writers, translators, public men of Japan, as well as souvenirs brought by the writer’s family to Veshenskaya.

The exhibition “Japan, Remote and Near” will function from March, 5 till April, 20, 2009.
