The Exhibition from the Collection of Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Museum of Art

Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Museum of Art was opened in 1976 on the 42nd floor of what was then the head office of The Yasuda Fire and Marine Insurance Co., Ltd. (currently known as Sompo Japan). The museum’s collection, which started out as approximately 450 works donated by Seiji Togo, now totals more than 650 pieces. Each season, the museum introduces a number of works from its collection, ranging from the highlights created by artists like Seiji Togo, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Paul Cézanne, to the heartwarming landscapes of the US naïve artist Grandma Moses. Please also take this opportunity to enjoy masterpieces that cannot often be seen on display during special exhibitions, such as the dramatic lithographs of Georges Rouault, or the refined Japanese paintings of artists like Kayo Yamaguchi.
