The Tokyo Fuji Art Museum, which opened in 1983 in Hachioji City, Tokyo, has a collection of approximately 30,000 paintings, prints, sculptures, photographs, ceramics, and other items from a wide range of eras created both domestically and internationally. In particular, its Western painting collection is one of the most complete in Japan, covering everything from 16th century Italian Renaissance to 20th century modern and contemporary art. This exhibition will feature over 80 Western paintings selected from the museum’s collection.

In the West, mythological and religious paintings were traditionally valued as noble painting genres, but in the modern era, painters’ interest shifted to the development of innovative painting subjects and innovations in figurative expression itself. Enjoy the 400-year history of Western painting through masterpieces by popular painters such as Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, and Chagall, as well as classic masters such as Tintoretto, Van Dyck, and Claude Lorrain.
