Nerima Art Museum
In this Meetup, let's check out an exhibition of Art Deco prints held at Nerima Art Museum.
"This exhibition showcases Art Deco works from Shigeru Kashima's collection by two French painters from Nantes, Georges Barbier and Jean-Emile Laboureur. Barbier is known for his lush fashion and magazine illustrations, film and stage sets and costume designs. Laboureur, on the other hand, was an artist who made sharp, defined prints in a very different style." (Tokyo Art Beat)
I am not familiar with either of these artists but Barbier's fashion illustrations look very attractive. If you are a fan of Barbier, please participate in the event and enlighten us on him.
