Fascinated by Nature
Landscapes, Plants and Animals in the Tradition of East Asian Painting from the Neumann-Ogando Collection

04.05.2012 to 05.08.2012
Museum für Asiatische Kunst

About 60 pictures by Japanese and Chinese painters from the 18th to 20th centuries in the form of scroll paintings as well as several graphic prints will be on display at this exhibition. The works have been selected from the Neumann-Ogando collection which is being unveiled to the public in such detail for the first time and will be explored further in the accompanying catalogue.

At the heart of the exhibition are landscapes and depictions of plants and animals, which thematize different concepts of nature in East Asia. Rather than introducing the pictures from a primarily art historical viewpoint, the exhibition takes a new, holistic approach that also incorporates natural history. In the foreground are questions of ethology, zoology and ecology that are not only of significance to art lovers but to anyone who is interested in living in harmony with nature.
