The exhibition was a collection of collections by the Feche Museum in Corsica (the hometown of Napoleon), as is the subtitle. Fesh seems to have been a considerable art enthusiast by the Cardinal Joseph Feche, the uncle of Napoleon’s maternal mother. It seems to have had a collection of 16,000 points before, and it has dissipated as it went through the subsequent political change…. Still, it is said that Italy art has the collection of the scale after the Louvre in France. In this exhibition, there were some works not seen in the Japan such as Botticelli’s works. It seems to have already ended in Tokyo, but I write the impression because of great pains. I mean, the session is too short to shame!

As usual, I introduce the work of each chapter. This area is a ignorant genre for me, so I would like to explain, but I did not have a detailed explanation. I do not understand more than usual, but please be charming W

First light and dark drama-the world of 17th century religious painting >
Matthias Stomel, “The Sacrifice of Isaac”
It is a picture that the angel in the back suppresses the hand of the aged Abraham who is trying to stab the lying naked Isaac (boy) with a dagger. Isaac had a strong light, and it was bright and dark. It’s a baroque, because it feels bold and dramatic.

Sandro Botticelli “Madonna and Angels” ★ Can be seen here.
The work of Botticelli when he was 25 years old. It is depicted the angel who lifts the Mary and Jesus who holds the infant Jesus. Mary’s gaze was full of compassion. Jesus looked up to Mary and seemed to be appealing for something. The angel in the back looks so much farther than the screen that it seems that the world is spreading in the picture. According to the commentary, this picture seemed to be influenced by the master’s Filippo Rippi, and there was a photograph of the master picture of the same composition as this picture, too. As you can see in Jesus, the thinks is like a renaissance. Speaking of Botticelli, I think of the Birth of Venus, which everyone knows, but in this picture there was already an atmosphere with a unique elegance and mystique.

Luca Giordano “The Martyrdom of St. Sepastianus”
It is a picture where two arrows are pierced by the half-naked man and blood is thrown. The eyes are red and the big tears are flowing. The contrast is gasping because the body is morbid white and the background is black ground. It was a work that approached verisimilitude.

2. Staring at the everyday world-the world of 17th century secular painting >
Paul Brill “Landscape”
A work depicting a river and a rocky mountain. The expression of the light which hit the rock was an interesting ideal scenery, and the color was thin and it felt fantastic. This work is a rare and unusual style.

Giuseppe Lecco (Attribution) “Still Life with turtles and fish”
As if the spotlight was hit in the center, the white belly of the turtle was lying on his back. It was drawn quite realistically, and was lying around the growordy. The turtle’s eyes were still alive.

Chapter 3 Lightly elegant-the world of painting Italy the eighteenth century >
Collard Jacuzzi “Study for the dome decoration of Saint Nicolas dei Lorenage basilica”
 ★ Can be seen here.
This man is a master of Goya and a Rococo painter. This is a three-piece picture and is part of a fresco decoration plan with a heavenly theme. The back is thin and the front is dark, and it depicts the saints who relax on the clouds and the angels dancing above them. The soft color is elegant and clear beauty. It was a picture of the feeling of being enveloped in light.

Etienne Palacell “Christ and the Samaritan woman”
It is a picture of a very refined feeling. This picture depicts a man in a hostile relationship with Jesus, who sits by the well in search of water. Jesus and the woman seem to be talking, and the woman says, “I hear that the Messiah will come”, and it is the scene that Jesus answered, “It is Me”. The suspicious eyes of a woman with a clear eye and a jar of the bottle were very dramatic.

Felix Jiom “The landscape of Constanttinoble” and “Venetian Landscape”
It seems that in Venice, Naples and Genoa, a bright, graceful and airy expression was born. This is a picture depicting a harbor, and a gondola with a slightly tilted boat and about ten people was drawn. The surface of the water was expressed as a subtle change of light in the ship and the sky, and it was an atmosphere that passed to the impressionist school.

4. Napoleon and the Bonaparte clan >
Richard, Kennel “Death Mask of Napoleon” ★ Can be seen here.
This corner was centered on the works and belongings of Napoleon’s family, but this was the death mask of Napoleon’s death two days after he took the mold directly from his face. I had a firm face with a high nose. It might be terrible that the face remains. It was also introduced to Napoleon’s downfall, monarchy restoration, and the eventful history of the Third World.

François Gerard “The coronation of Napoleon I” ★ Can be seen here.
I remember seeing this in a textbook or something. It is a portrait of Napoleon wearing a luxurious cloak and attaching a gold cane. It was such an atmosphere that the aura came out from Napoleon by the precision which transmitted to the texture.

Antonio Canova “Cardinal Joseph Feche statue”
The first is the bust of Napoleon’s uncle who laid the foundation for the Museum collection. It seemed to be a person of strict morality and a thoughtful temperament, and it was able to be transmitted from the expression. I thought it was a bit mild.

Jules Paskwini, Cardinal Fesh
This is a picture of the Cardinal Fesh same as the bust, but I certainly look like compared with W bust that looks a little nervous, but the atmosphere looked a little different.

Lorenzo Bartolini “Elsa Napo Leone statue”
It is a bust of a pretty girl. The curled hair stretched to the shoulders, and the curls were supple. There was a commentary that the feature of parents came out on the chin with the face that the product seemed to be.

Alexander Cabell “Napoleon III”
There is also a work of the Cabell! And was delighted W depicts a majestic emperor, Napoleon III. However, the pose was standing in front of the throne in the clothes of the normal time instead of the clothes for the ritual. This person, like the first, was the last misfortune.

So, I was able to enjoy a valuable work that was not much score. Really the period will be spared…. The Daimaru Museum has been doing Tunisia exhibition for three weeks now, and it is really shame.
