Exhibition of Overseas Artists

“Paintings by Straight Lines and Visual Art

Many works of art donated to this museum by Sato’s friends show the trend of geometrical constructive painting, rare in Japan. Visitors can see some aspects of  European art history in the abstract paintings in the collection of over 255 pieces by over 140 artists from around the world, particularly in geometrical constructive ones.

This exhibition displays 63 pieces on the third floor, selected from the collection, which are paintings using straight lines on a surface plain, relief, obje, and works of visual art.  In addition to this, a cubic work is displayed in the entrance hall. Here in this work, there lies the world of a straight line, or a world beyond the line.
