Helene Kröller-Müller was an art collector and philanthropist who was credited as one of the first people to recognize the talent of revered artist Vincent Van Gogh. During her lifetime she amassed over 90 of his paintings (and even more drawings!) —it's one of the world's largest Van Gogh collections.

A special exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum will showcase 28 paintings and 20 drawings by Van Gogh from the Kröller-Müller collection, along with 20 additional paintings from Jean-François Millet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Georges Seurat, Odilon Redon, and Piet Mondrian.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 2000 yen, and advance reservations are required. Please visit the official event website for details.
