For years, the Manggha Museum has been presenting exhibitions that bring closer, sometimes even reveal the relationship between nature and culture, between different traditions: Japanese and Western, exploring their non-obvious, inspiring contact. Botanical Explorations. Botanical Art in the 21st Century is the first exhibition in Poland to show the phenomenon of contemporary European and Japanese botanical art. Works by contemporary artists presented in the context of works by old masters of botanical illustration: Basilius Besler, Crispijn van de Passe the Elder and the Younger, Jacob Hoefnagel, Emanuel Sweert, Elizabeth Blackwell and – above all – Maria Sibylla Merian. Accompanying them, entering into surprising visual and narrative relationships, are Hiroshige’s “flower and bird paintings.” Works by 35 artists from Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Poland, Russia, and the United Kingdom.
