Idemitsu Museum of Arts
The Idemitsu Museum of Arts was established in 1966 on the 9th floor of the Imperial Theater Building, which overlooks the lush greenery of the Imperial Palace Garden. The museum was designed to integrate the unique sense of traditional Japanese hospitality with all the amenities of a modern building, inviting guests to enjoy the Idemitsu Collection in a Zen-like, relaxed and serene environment.
Specially curated themed exhibitions featuring selected works of Japanese painting, calligraphy, and East Asian ceramics from the Idemitsu Collection are held six to seven times a year.
The major works of Georges Rouault (1871-1958), the religious French master painter famous for the series “Passion” depicting the last days of life of Jesus Christ, are exhibited year-round.
A particularly interesting and unique feature of the Museum is the Shred Room, which displays fragments of pottery collected from kilns all around Asia and Egypt, particulary the Fustat site, Cairo.
