French Impressionism was not only appreciated by Western collectors: it also found an early following in Japan. In 2022, on the occasion of its 100th anniversary, the Museum Folkwang presents its outstanding Post-Impressionist collection, assembled by Karl Ernst Osthaus―supplemented here by Impressionist highlights from the Kojiro Matsukata Collection, which laid the foundation for the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo.
Introducing these two collectors, the catalog features about 120 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 East Asian works from the collections of Matsukata and Osthaus. These are accompanied by a short story from the bestselling Japanese author Sayaka Murata.
