Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir were two prominent figures of the Impressionist art movement, which took the world by storm in the 19th century. Their works continue to inspire and captivate audiences to this day, and a special exhibition taking place at Tokyo's Matsuoka Museum of Art will explore a variety of them.
The museum's collection of Western paintings includes not only works from Monet and Renoir, but pieces from other French Impressionists and Neo-Impressionists such as Paul Signac and Henri-Edmond Cross. Some of their works will also be shown at the event.
Admission to the exhibition is priced at 1200 yen.
