Peinture de genre (genre painting) refers to works that deal with the subject of everyday life. This exhibition, made up of 83 works that were carefully selected from the Ｍusée du Louvre’s massive collection, traces the development of genre painting across four centuries, from the Renaissance to the mid-19th century. In addition to Vemeer’s The Astronomer, which will be shown in Japan for the first time, the exhibition presents works by prominent painters from every era and region including Tiziano, Rembrandt, Murillo, Watteau, Chardin, and Millet, allowing viewers to enjoy the diverse charms of genre painting.
