Exhibition focusing on National Gallery treasures to be held next year

The Yomiuri Shimbun The National Gallery, a world-leading British art museum in London, announced it will display about 60 famed paintings from its collection next year in Japan at an exhibition the gallery will cohost with The Yomiuri Shimbun and others.

It will be the first time for the British gallery to loan a large number of artworks.

The exhibition will feature Western paintings spanning from the Italian Renaissance to the beginning of the 20th century, including “Sunflowers” (1888) by Vincent van Gogh (1853-90), which will be shown in Japan for the first time.

The exhibition, which is tentatively titled “Masterpieces from the National Gallery, London,” will be held at the National Museum of Western Art in Ueno Park in Tokyo from March 3 to June 14, 2020, and then at the National Museum of Art, Osaka in Osaka from July 7 to Oct. 18, 2020.Speech
