Ends in 35 days

The Impressionists, who emerged in the latter half of the 19th century, depicted France as it really was, including everyday life and the pleasures of leisure, and created a new world of “la douce France” or sweet France. The work of Picasso and other foreign painters of the 20th century conveyed the spirit of Paris as well as their homeland, and the rare richness of the artistic activities that developed in Paris.

This exhibition presents 74 carefully selected paintings by popular French painters from the Pola Museum of Art’s collection, from the Impressionist period to the Ecole de Paris, along with twelve Art Nouveau and Art Deco makeup tools that were favored by Parisians of the time. This is the second exhibition of this kind to be held at Bunkamura in 15 years, following the highly popular “Encountered in Shibya- The Impressionist Collection at the Pola Museum of Art” exhibition held in 2006.

Online reservations are required for all Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays during the exhibition period, as well as from November 15 (Monday) to November 23 (Tuesday, national holiday).
