Impressionism and Post-Impressionism in Germany and Japan

From Renoir to Monet to Gauguin – French Impressionism was not only appreciated by Western collectors at the beginning of the 20th century – it also found an early following in Japan. In 2022, on the occasion of its 100th anniversary, the Museum Folkwang will show its outstanding Post-Impressionist collection founded by Karl Ernst Osthaus (1874–1921). The museum collection will be supplemented by Impressionist highlights from the Kojiro Matsukata Collection (1865–1950), which laid the foundation for the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo. This is the first time this collection will be presented comprehensively outside Japan since the 1950s. The catalogue features a unique compilation of about 120 works and introduces two important collectors. Transnational collection history is combined with modern masterpieces.

Featuring paintings, drawings, and sculptures by Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Auguste Rodin, among others, as well as a new installation by Tabaimo and Chiharu Shiota and a selection of East Asian works from the former holdings of Matsukata and Osthaus. Accompanied by a short story by Japanese bestselling author Sayaka Murata.

Museum Folkwang, Essen, February 6–May 15, 2022
In cooperation with The National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo
