Selected Works from the Collection:
The Grow of Life and Joy of Artistic Creation
Commemorative Special Exhibition.
From our collection, around 70 masterpieces of different genres, such as Western and Japanese style painting, sculpture, and porcelain, will be exhibited in the Commemorative Special Exhibition Part 1. The theme of this show derives from our new logo which symbolizes one of the most valuable aspects of art; “opening people’s mind.”
Encountering with the works selected here and appreciating their pure forms and colors, or sceneries and objects represented in them, viewers would be awakened a sense of exaltation or tranquility. Although difficult to experience in a busy daily life, such awakening of the sense through art is of great importance in leading to open-mindedness and thereby in fostering a meaningful life.

Van Gogh and Still Life: From Tradition to Innovation
Notice of the exhibition
What did Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890) learn, and what did he pass on? This exhibition will place Van Gogh within the development of still life painting in Europe, from the 17th-century Netherlands to the start of the 20th century, and explore what Van Gogh learned from his predecessors, how this was reflected in his own works, and how he influenced future generations of artists. The exhibition will also include an area that focuses on ‘Sunflowers’, introducing works by Van Gogh and other artists that depict sunflowers and investigating why they painted this subject.
