Otto Nebel and His Contemporaries ─ Chagall, Kandinsky, Klee
In a nutshell
The exhibition intersperses works by Chagall, Kandinsky and Klee with works of similar style by Nebel. The artist’s interest in architecture, color, music, poetry, travel and acting are highlighted through his art. This retrospective demonstrates his evolving subject matters and styles and his work is complemented, not overshadowed, by his contemporaries.
The museum is located in the basement of the Bunkamura building in the heart of Shibuya.
English? (labels/audio guides/handouts)
The introduction and chapter wall texts are in English and Japanese but explanatory text near selected works and other information are only in Japanese.
Otto Nebel seemed to love and respect color. His Italian Color Atlas demonstrates his desire to capture and document the color he experienced in Italy. These colors brought some much needed cheer to Tokyo’s rainy October days.
Fans of Chagall, Kandinsky and Klee will definitely enjoy this exhibit.
