The National Museum of Western Art will host the London National Gallery Exhibition from March 3 (Tuesday) to June 14 (Sun), 2020.
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.
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.
This time, about one year until the holding, information of 14 works other than Goch's "Sunflower" was announced. At Kokosil, we will introduce a few of them carefully.
This exhibition presents about 60 masterpieces of western paintings covering regions and genres from the Renaissance to the end of the 19th century, held by the London National Gallery. Its composition is based on the interrelationship in the art of Britain and the continent of Europe, and the collection of art of the continent in the UK, and plans to light the characteristics of the museum as a pan-European collection built in the UK doing. Above all, Japan's first exhibition of works including Goch "Himawari", which is the largest feature of the museum, will be a long-awaited opportunity even for art fans.
Kokosil will continue to provide the latest information on this exhibition, so stay tuned!
