Shiga Kenritsu Kindai Bijutsukan (Museum of Modern Art)Shiga

The collection at Shiga Kenritsu Kindai Bijutsukan holds works of modern art, focusing on the United States. These include works by Andy Warhol, the standard bearer of pop art, and the powerful "new sculptor" George Segal. Another integral part of this collection is modern Japanese-style painting, including works by artists who contributed to the golden age of Japanese-style painting in the first half of the 20th century. These works include the historical paintings of Yukihiko Yasuda, based on ancient classics of China and Japan, and the realistic paintings of Gyoshu Hayami. In the garden is Calders Flamingo, with Biwa-ko, Japan's biggest lake, forming the backdrop for those gazing out from the museum's interior.'
