This exhibition will provide Japanese audiences with their first look at the work of one of the finest painters of the Italian Baroque. The man who was born as Giovanni Francesco Barbieri received the unflattering nickname, Guercino, on account of his pronounced squint, but this didn’t stop him from becoming one of the most noted artists of his time. Moving to a more academic style in his later career, the artist and his work had fallen out of favor by the 19th century. Interest in his work has grown over the years, and several exhibitions of his work have been touring the world recently. See the great Italian’s work for yourself at the National Museum of Western Art.
