Samurai

The splendour of Japanese chivalry.
The Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection

The Samurai dominated Japan’s history for centuries, not just as warriors but as the political élite. Their legends are tales of courage and discipline, loyalty and noble self-sacrifice – interwoven with betrayal, intrigue and ruthless violence. Exquisitely wrought in precious metals and sumptuous materials, their armour was not merely a protective covering, but also an imposing status symbol. The exhibition brings the fascinating history of Japanese chivalry to life with a magnificent array of objects.

侍展

華麗な日本の武士道
アン&ガブリエル バルビエ・ミュラー コレクション

何世紀にも亘り、武士は武人としてだけでなく、政治的エリートとして日本の歴史を形作ってきた。武士についての神話は、勇敢さ、礼節、忠節、高貴な自己犠牲だけでなく、裏切り、陰謀、容赦なき暴力をも語っている。

貴金属や貴重な素材を用い、高度な技工により作られた装備は、効果的な防具であったのみならず、堂々たる地位の象徴でもあった。

この侍展では、華麗な展示品を通じて、緊張感に満ちた日本の武士道の歴史が生き生きと蘇る。

In a new light

Canada and Impressionism

For the first time in Europe, the Kunsthalle Munich presents masterpieces by Canadian Impressionists from the late 19th to the early 20th century. The journey starts in Paris, where many Canadian painters came to study. Some of them stayed in Europe, while others returned home. Influenced by Impressionism, they were especially interested in capturing the fleeting atmosphere of the moment. In addition to scenes from everyday life in Canada, they painted landscapes that reproduced the incomparable light and nature of the North. Some artists ultimately emancipated themselves from European Impressionism, creating an own distinctive style for their young nation.

Organized by the National Gallery of Canada
