From the latter half of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century, Japanese ukiyo-e and crafts inspired Western art and represented modern times such as Claude Monet (1840-1926) and Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). It has become an important source of inspiration for artists. This "Japonisme", which took place around France, has a wide range of influences on Western design and the academic art world that values tradition. At the same time, in Japan, where the Europeanization policy was promoted with the opening of the country, many students including Kuroda Seiki (1866-1924) studied abroad in France, and the art they learned there was the subsequent modern Japan. It became the cornerstone of art. In addition, some of the unique painters of the Taisho era, such as Tetsugoro Yorozu (1885-1927) and Ryusei Kishida (1891-1929), expressed their admiration and passion for French art through magazines and art books, even though they could not study in Europe. There were many young people who were inflated. The longing for a foreign country, such as the deification of Goch, which was spurred by the literary magazine "Shirakaba", and the impact of the avant-garde works of the returnees, further aroused the imagination of the artists.
In the turbulent times of modernization, the two countries, Japan and France, were indispensable to each other in their search for new standards and sensibilities of beauty. This exhibition is an attempt to verify the "reciprocation of beauty" woven by both arts cultivated over a long history in an era when a large amount of goods, information, and people could come and go. In addition, we pay attention to the illusions created by longing and curiosity for different cultures and certain deviations, and we are active internationally.Through the works of Ist, we will approach the essence and charm of understanding different cultures.

The Pola Museum of Art was opened in 2002 in Hakone Town, Kanagawa Prefecture, with the concept of "coexistence of nature and art in Hakone." The collection of the Pola Museum of Art has been collected by Tsuneji Suzuki, the second generation of the founder of POLA, for more than 40 years. There are 10,000 points. The building, which takes into consideration the nature and scenery of Hakone, has a height of 8m above ground, and most of the building is placed underground so that it blends into the forest. In addition, the promenade was grand-opened in July 2013 so that you can enjoy the rich nature of Fuji Hakone Izu National Park. In the forest where beech and Himeshara grow in clusters, you can enjoy nature walks along with art works.
The collection of Western paintings centered on Impressionists such as Monet and Renoir is one of the largest in Japan. Although it is located in a tourist spot called Hakone, you can relax and appreciate authentic art works. As one of our commitments, the lighting in the exhibition room is set to "Twilight in Paris in July" so that Impressionist works can be beautifully appreciated. In addition, you can enjoy it without getting tired even if you visit the exhibition or each season, such as renewing the original goods and the course menu of the restaurant according to the theme of each exhibition. In an architectural space full of light, please spend a time touching the rich collection and the works of artists who are active on the front lines in modern times.
