The efforts of potters who have a strong admiration for ancient ceramics, which have been loved for a long time, and challenge their reproduction are called classical reconstruction. Song dynasty celadon and Ming dynasty red porcelain loved by Chinese royal aristocrats and literati, Shino, Oribe and Bizen loved by Japanese tea masters in the Momoyama period are longing goals for modern potters. It has also become a source of beauty that creates new expressions.

While trying to approach the beauty of ancient ceramics, new possibilities for expression are discovered, and beautiful works that surpass old works are born.

The works of the potters who worked on the revival of the classics do not just show expressions backed by high technology. It reflects the aesthetic sense of the Japanese people, which has been passed down to us today living in the 21st century, and it resonates with people's hearts over time, and the beauty that has never changed. There is a grace. From the collection of the Pola Museum of Art, about 60 items such as Rosanjin Kitaoji, Hajime Kato, Mineo Okabe, Toyozora Arakawa, and Kaneshige Toyo will be exhibited.

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 landscape 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 works of art. 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.
