National Art Centre hosting Impressionist exhibition

An arts centre in Japan's capital is hosting a showing of a wide range of work by Impressionist painters.

The event, called Impressionist and Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the National Gallery of Art, will include works my huge names in the art world, such as Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cezanne and Paul Gaugin.

Having already begun, the show at the National Art Centre, Tokyo will run until September 5th. Entrance to the special collection, on loan from Washington DC's National Gallery of Art, costs 1,500 yen (or £11.60).

Three sections make up the exhibition: the first part is all about the artists whose work influenced and preceded Impressionism, followed by the artists of the school in question. The final part of the exhibition is concerned with the 'Post-Impressionists' such as Cezanne.

The National Art Centre, Tokyo first opened in 2007. It is home to over 600 pieces of modern art.
