December 7th - Van Gogh: Rêves de Japon

japonThe work of Van Gogh, which has been characterized as tortured and disorganized, was influenced by Japanese artists who concentrated on composition, serenity and inner peace.

Stanford alumni participated in one of the major cultural events of the year in Paris : a visit, with our usual conférencière Mme Dupeyrat, to the Pinacothèque which is featuring an exhibition of (about 40) selected works of Van Gogh which illustrate the influence of Japanese art (and especially that of Hiroshige) on Impressionist art.

Madame Odile Dupeyrat, a distinguished conférencière du Louvre, was at her best  helping us discover the nuances of these masterpieces (in French).

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Paris — Over 50 Stanford University alumni and friends gathered in the simultaneously ornate and cozy gilded-ceilinged library of the Paris Googleplex for an evening of high-tech discussion and exchange. Attendees were privy to presentations about ongoing projects, including the Paris team’s pioneering work in ensuring optimal access for users browsing the web with less than cutting-edge smart phones, creating algorithms that automatically populate YouTube channels with related content and rolling out the exciting new Google Cultural Institute, whose aim is to preserve and promote culture online. The Google Cultural Institute is headquartered in Paris and will soon be housed in a special purpose-built space that will include the latest technologies for curating cultural exhibits offline.
