Bridgestone Museum of Art (Burijisuton Bijutsukan)

Bridgestone Museum of Art (Burijisuton Bijutsukan) Review

This is one of Japan's best private collections of French impressionist art and sculpture and of post-Meiji Japanese painting in Western styles by such artists as Shigeru Aoki and Tsuguji Fujita. The collection, assembled by Bridgestone Tire Company founder Shojiro Ishibashi, also includes works by Rembrandt, Picasso, Utrillo, and Modigliani. The small gallery devoted to ancient art has a breathtaking Egyptian Sacred Cat sculpture dating to between 950 and 660 bc. The Bridgestone also puts on major exhibits from private collections and museums abroad.
