Exhibition Trailer Renoir, Monet, Gauguin
From Renoir via Monet to Gauguin – In 2022, on the occasion of its 100th anniversary in Essen, Museum Folkwang presents its exceptional late-impressionist art collection established by Karl Ernst Osthaus (1874–1921) in dialogue with the collection of Kōjirō Matsukata (1866–1950). For the first time since the 1950s, the Japanese collection of French Impressionism from the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo will again be exhibited comprehensively in Europe. Featuring around 120 masterpieces by Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Auguste Rodin, the exhibition reveals how modern French art was not only appreciated by Western collectors at the beginning of the 20th century, but also found an early following in Japan. This is depicted through two fascinating collector personalities of the early 20th century: Kōjirō Matsukata and Karl Ernst Osthaus.
