Popular for being home to some of the world’s most important pieces of art, from April 5th until August, 21st, 2017, the Musée de l’Orangerie displays a large exhibition that covers a huge selection of Impressionist pieces as well as Western and Japanese works of Modern Art.
Entitled “Tokyo-Paris Masterpieces from Bridgestone Museum of Art, Collection Ishibashi Foundation”, the exhibition actually presents the Collection of the Ishibashi Foundation, which, at the present day, encompasses more than 2600 artworks.
Stunning pieces by European artists such as Renoir, Monet, Matisse, Picasso, and Cézanne, will be displayed at l’Orangerie on this occasion, in addition to many other works by famous non-European artists.
From Japanese Western-style paintings to Western and Eastern ceramics and sculptures, “Tokyo-Paris Masterpieces from Bridgestone Museum of Art, Collection Ishibashi Foundation” provides a unique opportunity for locals as well as tourists to examine this fascinating collection before moving back to the Bridgestone Museum of Art, in Tokyo, at the end of this summer. So, if you’re one of our guests, consider visiting this splendid exhibition. The Musée de l’Orangerie is actually not too far from the Hotel Louvre Marsollier Opera Paris.
