The Impressionist Collection of the Pola Museum of Art 2006
This event has ended.
The Pola Museum of Art can boast of an extensive collection of 9500 works, both western-style and Japanese, but its mainstay is formed by its more than 400 paintings of the 19th-century impressionist and the early 20th-century School of Paris.
In this exhibition, the Museum is proud to introduce approximately 80 of these masterpieces, with special emphasis on works by such great, popular artists as Monet and Renoir.
Art lovers who have not yet had the opportunity to visit the Pola Museum in Hakone can now view these gems at their leisure in Tokyo.
A chance not to be missed!
