The Pola Museum of Art's painting collection traces the evolution of art with quality works, from 19th-century Impressionist paintings to 20th-century abstract paintings. In this permanent exhibition, we will explore the interesting features of masterpiece paintings from the two perspectives of "shape" and "color". In the first section, we will once again highlight the characteristics of the "shape" of masterpiece paintings by comparing them with sculptures that are three-dimensional. When comparing sculpture and painting, one of the unique ways of expressing painting is the use of color. The painters, who were fascinated by "color", arrived at their own original expressions while examining the effects in detail in their daily training. In the second section, we will introduce representative artists who have worked on their own color expression from various angles.

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.
