Time Out says

After a year and a half of renovations, The National Museum of Western Art – famously designed by French architect and painter Le Corbusier – finally reopened on April 9. The permanent collection boasts works ranging from Renaissance masterpieces to paintings from the early 20th century – most notably one of Monet’s ‘Water Lilies’ completed in 1916. 

This temporary exhibition celebrating the museum's reopening is held in collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum in the Netherlands and the Folkwang Museum in Essen, Germany. Highlights include the ‘Woman Before the Setting Sun’ painting by Caspar David Friedrich.
