Jacob von Sternberg - Edo Moon
The artwork Edo Moon (Edo is the former name of Tokyo, which became the capital of Japan from 1603, at the beginning of the so-called "Edo period"), made by Jacob von Sternberg, is part of the Tokyo Echoes series, in which the artist traces his time in Japan. Influenced by Japanese tradition and style, he gives life to a scene made of personal experiences re-elaborated by his intimacy. The work shows the expressive eloquence of the multi-awarded painter and emphasizes the harmonious, and refined, orchestration of the composition. In fact, the painting takes shape thanks to the interactions between various materials, such as acrylics, oil-wax, gouache and wood.
