    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 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 SHIMIZU Takashi
    Shimizu Takashi (1897-1981), Japan’s leading modern sculptor, originally wanted to be a painter. While studying abroad in France, he was awakened to the possibilities of sculpture by encountering Bourdelle’s work. He also continues to paint and was quite successful in both fields, becoming, for example, the first Japanese artist to have both paintings and sculptures accepted for the Salon d’automne. This exhibition is focused on seventeen new acquisitions in highlighting Shimizu’s paintings from his time in Europe.
