Masterly Visions - From Manet, Monet and Renoir to Twentieth-Century Art
This event has ended.
This exhibition features an outstanding group of masterpieces from the Bridgestone Museum of Art, some of which have not been shown very often in recent years. It introduces the collection's appeal and distinctive character in an easy-to-understand way. Returning to the galleries after long absences are works by the seventeenth-century Dutch master Rembrandt and by painters such as Pater and Ingres who continued the traditions of European art. The numerous masterpieces by Corot and Manet, who built the foundations of modern painting, and by such Impressionists and Post-Impressionists as Monet, Renoir, and Cezaanne form the core of our collection. The twentieth-century works by Picasso, Matisse, Rouault, and others represent magnificent outcomes of the evolution of modern painting. Visitors will also find much to enjoy and admire in the works of such Japanese Western-style painters as Fujishima Takeji, Aoki Shigeru, and Fujita Tsuguharu. Chosen from diverse periods, the exhibited works reveal these great masters' visions of humanity, nature, and the world around them.
