The collection was enriched with each generation. Today the more than 2,600 works are exhibit in Tokyo.

The founder of the Bridgestone Company, Shojiro Ishibashi (1889-1976), demonstrated very early his passion for arts and more particularly Western arts. The Museum displays Impressionist pieces as well as Western and Japanese works of modern art.

The exhibition will notably give pride of place to works ranging from Impressionism to western and eastern post-war abstraction, from Monet to Renoir, and from Caillebotte to Cézanne, Matisse, Picasso, Pollock and Shiraga.
