J·J· Grandville from M-collection
17.11.2018 - 03.03.2019

J·J·Grandville (1803-1847) was one of the most famous illustrators of 19th-century France. Thanks to the cooperation of one of Japan’s eminent collectors, Mr. M, many of Grandville’s pieces will be displayed: caricatures from papers and magazines such as La Caricature and Le Charivari, and illustrated books such as Un Autre Monde (Another World) and Les Fleurs Animees (The Flowers Personified). This is an introduction to the unusual imagination of an artist who pioneered surrealism.
