Overview

The Yamanashi Prefectural Museum of Art opened to the public in 1978. Today, we continues the commitment to promote art culture. Starting with the first acquisition, Jean-François Millet's The Sower, the museum has expanded its collection including other works by Millet, other Barbizon School artists and major European landscape artists. The museum has thus come to be known as the "museum of Millet". Furthermore, we have rich collections of modern and comtemporary Japanese artists. Thanks to many individuals' generous donations, today the museum's collection amounts to approximately 10,000 works. In 2004, the South Wing was added to the main building, offering more space for exhibitions, additionally in 2009, Millet Wing has opened, which is especially for works by Millet and Barbizon School artists.

I had been looking forward to visiting the Yamanashi Prefectural Museum of Art, even though my interest in fine art is purely incidental. Arriving by car via Route 20, the location was difficult to find; I was relying on the car navigation system but it...More

This is a very pleasant art museum, set in lovely grounds well worth a walking tour when one is finished with the museum proper. Nice variety of genres, displayed in spacious, well lit galleries.
