This exhibition celebrating the museum’s 60th anniversary traces the century-long journey of the Matsukata Collection––buffeted by the waves of turbulent times. The 160 or so artworks on display include some of the masterpieces from among the works dispersed in and outside Japan, such as the renowned Bedroom in Arles by Van Gogh and Water Lilies, Reflections of Weeping Willows by Monet, the latter rediscovered in Paris as recently as 2016. They are shown along with a variety of historical materials.
