Magic Hour: Twilight walking with Monet

Dec 1, 2021 at 9:00 am - Dec 25, 2021 at 5:00 pm


Throughout December, Pola Museum, which houses the largest collection of Monet works in Japan, will host a special exhibition in which the works are displayed in warm and soft “dusk” lighting.

The lighting in the exhibition room, designed by architect Hideyuki Nakayama, which is typically set to  bright, daytime color akin to “9am in Giverny,” will be switched to a warm, golden hour color five times per day. From 11am until 4pm each day, dusk colored lighting will take over the exhibition room for three minutes, allowing viewers to appreciate the works in a completely new context, giving new life to the compositions.

Many of Monet’s works were created with an emphasis on light and color, making them perfect subjects for an experiment of this kind. Works such as “Sunset on the Seine, Winter” (1880), “Etretat Sunset” (1885), “Houses of Parliament, Rose Symphony” (1900) and “Rouen Cathedral” (1892) were painted at night and will take on a completely different appearance for three minutes, five times per day at this exciting exhibition.

Adults tickets are ¥1,800, student and senior discounts are available.
