Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art愛知県美術館

Art Museum

This art museum in Nagoya City's Higashi Ward is located on the 10th floor of the Aichi Arts Center, and is the successor to the Aichi Prefectural Culture Hall and Museum of Art which opened in 1955. Primarily featuring 20th century art from Japan and abroad, the museum is home to many masterpieces including works by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Ryuzaburo Umehara, and Sotaro Yasui. In particular, there is a complete collection of works leaning towards German Expressionism and Surrealism, and also postwar art of the USA. The special collection donated by Nagoya art collector Teizo Kimura has more than 3,000 works including modern Japanese-style paintings, Chinaware, and Buddhist images, and these works are displayed in the Teizo Kimura Collection Room and in some of the special exhibitions.

          Aichi Areas


          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
