Museum in The Kyobashi, Nihonbashi area
The Bridgestone Museum of Art devotes itself to the collection and exhibition of works of Impressionism and other modern European art, as well as Japanese Western-style paintings from the Meiji and following eras. It was first begun in 1952, when Ishibashi Shojiro, founder of the Bridgestone Corporation, opened an art museum in the newly built Bridgestone Building and there exhibited his private collection of artworks.
In 1956, the Ishibashi Foundation was established, and in 1961, almost all the works in the Ishibashi collection were donated to the Foundation, forming the nucleus of the present permanent collection. The Bridgestone Museum of Art has continued thereafter to augment and enrich its collection, while always striving to provide an outstanding environment for the appreciation of art. It also organizes activities that introduce works of art in a highly enjoyable atmosphere, including the Saturday Lectures that it has held since its inception. A rewarding experience awaits all those who visit the Bridgestone Museum of Art.
