The Bridgestone Museum of Art has in its collection close to 160 paintings related to the concept of “time.”

Like chapters of a book, there are 24 different themes in this exhibition, with works representing the eras during which the featured artists lived. It covers both conceptual notions of time and its more literal interpretation as temporal progress.

Though the majority of paintings are by Impressionists such as Rembrandt, Monet and Renoir, there are also important works by abstract artists Picasso and Klee, as well as those by modern Japanese artists Asai Chu and Koide Narashige; Aug. 2-Sept. 23.
