About the Exhibition

When we speak of the Impressionists, the names Monet and Renoir would come immediately to mind. They and other friends who had met as students in art school, seeking a place to display their work, held what became known as the “Impressionist Exhibition.” The Impressionists, who were active in nineteenth-century France, had strong bonds of friendship. The young Cézanne, for example, would line up his canvas with Pissarro’s to paint beside him, looking up to him like a father. Caillebotte even had Renoir serve as the executor of his will.
Impressionist paintings are a centerpiece of the Ishibashi Foundation Collection. This exhibition approaches the Impressionist collection, now even more comprehensive through recent acquisitions, from a new perspective, tales of relationships among the artists.
