The exhibition entitled "Far Away Lights - Approaching Colours" introducing the effect of Japanese culture on culture open in the Móra Ferenc Museum was selected from the material of twelve museums. The visitors may experience a mystic world, the magical Far East via a great number of objects. The display open until 20 January includes 11 original woodcarvings, 39 Japanese objects, 15 dolls and 21 bowls, vases and pots that were once in use. Over all, 39 Hungarian artworks that show the effect of Japanese art, among others the work of Ripple-Rónai József, Csók István and Kasák Lajos, are included in the material. The museum in Csongrád County becomes the "Museum of the Rising Sun" symbolically in the next few months.
A taste of the exhibition
The two curators of the display, Papp Katalin and Gálig Zoltán prepared the showing for a year and a half. The material shown at the exhibition represents the effect of Japanese culture on Hungarian and European art. Secession, impressionism and expressionism could not have born without Japanese art and its philosophy.

The most interesting part from the respect of arts history is the section presenting original Japanese sample books from the 19th century. The sample books include Far Eastern motifs which are considered unique in Japan nowadays. Several "inros", according to many the top of enamel art in Japan, are also displayed. The miniature artworks played important part in ordinary life in Japan. The little boxes that contained herbs were hung on belts of men and whenever they were in pain they applied it. Other spectacles are the so-called "necks", ivory carvings, fans and kimonos.
