|Notice of Co-Sponsorship of "Corot: Variations of Light and Recollection"|
|August 8, 2008|
|As part of our cultural and social contribution program, Daiwabo Information System will co-sponsor the "Corot: Variations of Light and Recollection" exhibition organized by the Yomiuri Shimbun.
This exhibition features pieces by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, a French painter of the 19th century who is regarded as one of the first Impressionists. It is an epoch-making exhibition, since it includes the whole range of his style, from his youth to period in his life. It is held with the support of the Louvre Museum.
The highlights of this exhibition are "Woman with a Pearl," "Memory of Mortefontaine," and "Lady in Blue," three of the Louvre Museum's most famous paintings. "Woman with a Pearl," known as Corot's Mona Lisa, is of particular interest, since this is the first time for it to be shown in Japan.
