Orangerie Museum - Masterpieces from Bridgestone Museum of Art of Tokyo, Collection Ishibashi Foundation

The masterpieces from the collection at the Bridgestone Museum are the result of the love of art of three generations of the Ishibashi industrial dynasty. The founder of the Bridgestone company, Shojiro Ishibashi (1889-1976), demonstrated early on in his career a passion for arts, and more particularly Western arts, which he began to collect as of the late 1930s. In 1952 he commissioned the building of a museum at the heart of Tokyo to house his collection. The museum displays Impressionist pieces as well as Western and Japanese works of modern art to the public. This collection was gradually enriched with each generation. The Ishibashi Foundation today conserves more than 2,600 works.
The exhibition will be on view until August 21, 2017
