The London National Gallery is one of the world's leading art museums facing Trafalgar Square in central London. Unlike many European art museums, which are based on royal collections, it has its greatest feature in being an art museum founded in 1824 by a national statute. Van Eyck, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Titian, Rubens, Velazquez, Turner, Monet, Cezanne, Gogh, etc., about 2,300 points covering various paintings of European paintings from the late 13th century to the early 20th century It holds works and has more than 5 million visitors, one of the top five in the world's museums and museums.

London National Gallery Exhibition held for the first time in 2020! Gogh "Sunflower" first visit to Japan! !

However, the museum, which has many permanent works on display, is known to be extremely difficult to lend works, and it has never been held outside of the museum. The exhibition of about 60 masterpieces, including Goch's masterpiece "Himawaru", which will be released for the first time in Japan, is one of the first attempts in the museum's history and will be held historically. In addition, 2020 is the year of the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic Games, and there is no doubt that this groundbreaking exhibition will receive global attention.
