“Impressionist Masterpieces from the E.G. Buehrle Collection, Zurich (Switzerland)” will be held at the National Art Center, Tokyo from February 14th to May 7th, 2018.
Emil Georg Bührle (1890-1956) was a successful Swiss businessman known for being an art lover with a lifelong passion for collecting art. Today the Bührle collection is known by art aficionados for its works ranging mainly from 16th century Dutch paintings to those by the great artists of the 20th century, with a particularly superb assembly of works by the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. The collection will soon be transferred to the Kunsthaus Zürich. This exhibition is being held in Japan upon this final opportunity to present the entire image of the collection prior to the transfer. This exhibition presents a selection of around 60 works focusing on modern masterpieces, with the majority never before displayed in Japan.
It is a valuable opportunity to experience one of the world’s great collections of Impressionist painting.
