The Pola Museum of Art and the Hiroshima Museum of Art are pleased to present this joint exhibition: Impressionism—Light and Memory.

This exhibition has 73 masterpieces from the collections of The Pola Museum of Art and the Hiroshima Museum of Art. These are centered on French Impressionists landscapes but also including various other works by artists ranging from Delacroix and Corot to Picasso and Matisse—in order to explore themes including the importance of travel and memory for these nineteenth-century painters, their modern gaze on cities and waterscapes, and how impressions of landscapes or changes of transient light are captured in their expression of forms and colors.

About Works

img

To realize this exhibition, we have been contemplating its structure and the selection of works during several years of research into the collections of both museums involving a constant exchange of opinions. We hope this will open the way to a renewed appreciation of French Impressionist paintings and a fuller understanding of the collections of the two museums in Japan.
