[To prevent the spread of new coronavirus infectious diseases, the museum is temporarily closed from February 29, 2020 (Saturday)] This exhibition is the first "Western art only" collection exhibition at the Yokohama Museum of Art. We will introduce about 1,000 paintings, sculptures and prints by Western artists in this museum and about 260 points from the photograph collection along the flow of art history. Among them are the works of Surrealism such as Dali and Magritte, works of Dada and constructivism that overturned the concept of art in the first half of the 20th century, and French modern art such as Cezanne, Picasso, Brancusi. It has become a defining feature of Western art collections. In addition to those mentioned above, this time we will take up many works that were rarely exhibited. One of the highlights is the Western prints from the early 16th century woodblock prints to the 19th century Barbizon School and Impressionism, which were collected by the former collection of mountain climbers, essays and print collectors Kojima Usui. We also pay attention to the history of art and photography being deeply related in various ways since the invention of photography in the mid-19th century. You can see a wide range of achievements of the collection of Western art at the Yokohama Museum of Art for more than 30 years since 1982 and trace the rich history of handicrafts and photography in the history of 500 years of Western art ranging from woodcut illustrations to modern Boltanski. Please enjoy! [Closed day] Thursday
