    Selections from the Ishibashi Foundation Collection Special Section Women Reading

    9 September [Sat] - 19 November [Sun], 2023

    About this exhibition

    The Ishibashi Foundation Collection now consists of approximately 3,000 works, including Impressionist paintings from the latter half of the nineteenth century, modern paintings from the twentieth century, modern Japanese paintings from the Meiji period on, postwar Abstract paintings, early modern and modern art from Japan and elsewhere in East Asia, and ancient Greek and Roman art. Here we introduce, throughout the year, a variety of works selected from the collection.

    Special Section Women Reading
    Women engaged in reading has been a theme in European art since the eighteenth century. Modern Japanese artists who studied in the West have also addressed that theme. This exhibition introduces works from the Ishibashi Foundation Collection depicting women reading, including paintings by Matisse, Cassatt, and Yamashita Shintaro.
