[The entire building is temporarily closed from Saturday, February 29, 2020 to prevent the spread of new coronavirus infections] This exhibition is the first collection exhibition of "Western art only" at the Museum Shop at Yokohama Museum of Art. Introducing about 1,000 paintings, sculptures, and prints by Western artists in the museum's collection and about 260 of the photo collections in line with the flow of art history. Among them, the works of Surrealism such as Dali and Magritte, the works of Dada and compositionism that overturned the concept of art in the first half of the 20th century, and modern French art such as Cezanne, Picasso and Brancusi are in the museum. It is a hallmark of the Western art collection. This time, in addition to those, we will take up a lot of works that have not been exhibited so far. One of the highlights is the Western prints from the early 16th century woodblock illustrations to the 19th century Barbizon and Impressionists, which were formerly owned by Usui Kojima, a mountaineer, essayist and print collector. We also pay attention to the history of art and photography, which have been deeply involved in various forms since the invention of photography in the mid-19th century. You can see the results of the collection of Western art at the Museum of Yokohama Museum of Art for more than 30 years since 1982, and trace the history of 500 years of Western art from woodblock illustrations to contemporary Voltansky, and the rich relationship between handicrafts and photography in art. Please enjoy! [Closed] Thursday
