    The SOMPO Museum of Art (formerly “Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Museum”) marked a fresh start in the new museum building opened in July.

    Following the inaugural exhibition, this long-awaited show will feature Van Gogh’s still life paintings.


    Highlights of the “Van Gogh and Still Life” exhibition

    This exhibition sheds light on still lifes of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) while tracing the history of still life paintings from the 17th century Netherlands through the 20th century Europe.


    ◆25 still lifes by Van Gogh

    The exhibition will bring together 25 still life paintings by Van Gogh – out of some 170 he painted – from the early days of his career to his last days.

    That includes the most outstanding works such as his “Sunflowers” from the museum’s collection and “Irises” on loan from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

    ◆From the 17th century Netherlands

    Still life came to be established as a branch of paintings in the 17th century and flourished in the economically prospered Dutch and Flanders society.

    Some objects in still life paintings represented the wealth, such as fruits and other delicacies, precious materials and exquisite crafts.

    Other things – candles and skulls, among others – served as metaphors for the impermanence of life.

    ◆ From the 19th to the 20th century Europe

    “Post-Impressionist” painters such as Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Cézanne explored an innovative style and spirit, which was further experimented by artists of the 20th century.
