Claude Monet
Matsukata Collection

The National Museum of Western Art, based on the core Matsukata Collection returned to Japan by France in 1959, is the only national museum dedicated specifically to Western art. In the more than half century since its opening, the NMWA has continued to actively collect, preserve and display Western art from the late medieval period through the early 20th century. The NMWA also plays an important role in the study and dissemination of information about Western art in Japan. This exhibition, organized as the Fiscal 2012 Traveling Exhibition from the NMWA, features 40 painting, 4 sculptures and 36 prints in its introduction of European modern art from the 19th through 20th centuries. The paintings include such 19th century painters as the Romantic Delacroix, the Realist Courbet, Impressionists Monet and Renoir, Post-Impressionist Gauguin and the painters of the Nabi School. Works by Rouault, Picasso and Leger represent the diverse trends of the early 20th century. Sculptures by Rodin and Maillol, major modern French masters of the art form, are also featured. The print works include examples by Goya, the Spanish artist recognized as a precursor to modern art, the German printmakers Klinger and Vögeler, and the Norwegian artist Munch, all revealing the richly individualistic styles of European artists working outside of France. We hope that venue locale residents and those visiting the area will enjoy this opportunity to see these masterworks of Western art.
