Idemitsu Museum of Arts

The Idemitsu Museum of Arts was opened in 1966 as an exhibition hall for the Idemitsu Collection. The building is located on the 9th floor of the Imperial Theater Building looking down over the beautiful Imperial Garden in Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo. The museum is designed to incorporate the Japanese spirit of welcome in the setting of the modern building and invites visitors to enjoy the artworks in comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.Special exhibitions are held about five to six times a year, with themed exhibitions of selected works from the Idemitsu Collection of Japanese painting and calligraphy, and East Asian ceramics. Other attractions include a year-round exhibition of major works by Georges Rouault (1871-1958), the French master of religious paintings who is famous for the series called “Passion” depicting the last days of life of Jesus Christ. The unique feature of the Museum is the Sherd Room where fragments of pottery collected from kilns around Asia and Egypt (Fustat site, Cairo) are displayed.
