Tokyo-Paris, Masterpieces from the Bridgestone Museum of Art exhibition at the Musée de l’Orangerie until 21st August 2017

Art and Culture, newsletter - eng

We’re rather lucky that the new building for the Ishibashi Foundation collection in Tokyo is still being built – it means that the Foundation can lend part of its works to the Musée de l’Orangerie, and you should seize the chance to see them.

Here’s all the info.

Shojiro Ishibashi (1889-1976), the founder of the Bridgestone company, started his collection of art in the 1930, and in 1952 built a museum in Tokyo to house it, specialised in Impressionism and modern art, both Japanese and western.

The collection has now grown to include over 2,600 works of art (!), and while their new home is being prepared, some of the masterpieces are being lent to foreign museums. Paris is particularly lucky, as the Musée de l’Orangerie is their only stop in Europe.

So don’t miss this chance to see some rare works by Monet, Cézanne, Renoir, Matisse, Caillebotte, Pollock, Picasso…
