Bridgestone Museum of Art information
The Bridgestone Corporation’s collection, which was previously kept as a private collection by Bridgestone founder Ishibashi Shōjiro, is one of the best French impressionist collections you will find in Asia. Though European painting is undoubtedly the main attraction (think Renoir, Ingres, Monet, Corot, Matisse, Picasso, Kandinsky et al), the museum also exhibits sculpture and some works by Japanese impressionists as well as European pieces that employ abstract or neoclassical aesthetics.
