The Pola Museum of Art (http://www.polamuseum.or.jp/english/index.php) in Hakone is situated in a very beautiful part of Japan because this area is famous for stunning nature. Therefore, many artists have flocked to Hakone in order to paint countless scenes of the countryside. Also, the cultural aspect of this amazing area is a real bonus because tourists can fuse their holiday in Hakone by visiting many stylish museums and other cultural aspects of Japanese culture.
The Pola Art Musuem is currently exhibiting the works of Amedeo Modigliani and this art museum comments on their website that: “Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) was an Italian-born painter and sculptor who played an important role in the École de Paris, the group of artists from around the world who gathered in the great art center of Paris in the early twentieth century. He became a legendary figure as an artist who did not receive the recognition he deserved and died prematurely because of his dissolute lifestyle. This exhibition explores Modigliani’s life and art, which is surrounded by myth and legend, in the context of the art of his time and attempts to reevaluate his historical position, which needs greater consideration.”
Visitors can also enjoy the stunning scenery of Hakone and eat scrumptious European cuisine which is served up at the restaurant within the museum. Alternatively, visitors can enjoy tea, coffee and snacks at the café. Also, the Museum Shop is well worth a visit because of the quality products available. Therefore, the needs of visitors are catered for and relaxing after visiting the various exhibitions on show is a great way to enjoy your stay and soak up the special atmosphere of this adorable museum.
