Pearls of Belgian Modern Art
Belgian modern art was strongly influenced by French art, but its evolution remained distinctive. This exhibition features Belgian modern art from 4 different movements: from Realism to Impressionism, Symbolism, Expressionism, and Surrealism. From the 70 or so works in the exhibition, most are from the collection of Himeji City Museum of Art, known as one of the richest Belgian art collections, both by number of pieces and quality, outside of Belgium. Others come from various public collections in Japan.
