On the 150th anniversary of the first Impressionist exhibition, “Frontiers of Impressionism" traces the impact and influence of Impressionism in Europe and America. In the late 19th century, painters from around the world gathered in the flourishing metropolis of Paris. There, they studied the techniques and methods of the emerging world of Impressionism and brought them back to their home countries. This exhibition focuses on the innovation and spread of Impressionism, which overturned traditions of Western art, which emphasizes its expansions in the United States.

The Worcester Art Museum, located in the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts, has been actively collecting Impressionist artworks since its opening to the public in 1898. Selected from the Museum’s extensive collection of Impressionist art, this exhibition features works by famed French Impressionists Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, the internationally active John Singer Sargent, important American Impressionists such as Childe Hassam, and other notable artists from Germany and Scandinavia. Most of these masterworks have never been shown in Japan. The exhibition will provide a rare opportunity to appreciate the fascinating world of American Impressionism.
