In commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Yokohama Museum of Art, the “Orangerie Museum Collection: 12 Painters in Love with Renoir and Paris” will be held. The Orangery Museum of Art is a refurbished orange greenhouse on the banks of the Seine in Paris. The Impressionist and Ecole de Paris works, which were built by the painter Paul Guillaume, are Europe, featuring masterpieces by Matisse, Picasso and Modigliani, including Renoir ’s masterpiece “The Girls Playing the Piano”. One of the best painting collections.

Guillaume worked as a painter in Paris at the beginning of the 20th century, where young talent gathered, while he also collected works as a collector. The collection was touched by Mrs. Domenica after he passed away at a young age without completing his vision of turning the private residence into a museum. These works were purchased by the French State as the “Jean Walter & Paul Guillaume Collection”, named after Guillaume and Domenica ’s second husband, and were exhibited in the same building.

This exhibition is a valuable opportunity to come to Japan for the first time in 21 years, with about 70 paintings by 13 painters out of the 146 paintings held by the museum. Along with the stories hidden in the collection, please enjoy the many items that have been loved by people all over the world.

"The highlight here!"
I First exhibition in 21 years by the Paris Orangery Museum collection
Most of the collections in the museum are on permanent display, and it is extremely rare to rent them together outside the museum. In the past, the “Paris Orangerie Museum Exhibition” was held in 1998 at five venues nationwide, including Tokyo, and more than 1 million people were mobilized. This is the first time in Japan that you can see the gem collection in 21 years.

II Renoir's masterpiece "Girls Playing the Piano" comes to Japan
The Girls Playing the Piano is one of the most famous works of Renoir. This adorable piece from the Orangerie Museum is kept in the Renoir atelier until later years, and was collected by Paul Guillaume in 1928 after his death.

III Masterpieces of 13 artists who have fallen in love with Paris
In this exhibition, we will introduce 13 artists who gathered in Paris, such as the Impressionist master Renoir, Matisse and Picasso, who devoted their soul to exploring new painting expressions. Included in this collection are masterpieces from the late 19th century to the first half of the 20th century, when the French modern art blossomed.

Pay attention to the story of painter Paul Guillaume and his wife Domenica over the IV collection
Paul Guillaume actively supported not only painters who had already been evaluated, but also young artists who were not known at the time as painters. And I dreamed of collecting works that fit my aesthetics and creating a museum.. Paul passed away at a young age, but his wife Domenica inherited his will and eventually gave it to the French state as the “Jean Walter & Paul Guillaume Collection”. This exhibition will focus on the collector's dream of establishing an art museum and the story of friendship with painters.
