Saga Kenritsu Bijutsukan (Art Museum)
Saga Kenritsu Bijutsukan opened in October 1983 as part of the prefectures centennial celebration. Jointly administered by the adjacent Saga Kenritsu Hakubutsukan, the art museum focuses on the development of local culture, emphasizing permanent exhibitions. The museum collects and exhibits paintings, sculptures, calligraphy and other works by artists born in or closely connected to Saga Prefecture. These include Tadao Koga, Saburosuke Okada, and Keiichiro Kume. Major works housed here include Rofujin-zo (Portrait of an Elderly Woman) by Kaneyuki Hyakutake, and Seiyo-fujin-zo (Portrait of a Western Woman) by Saburosuke Okada. The museum's collection of works by modern calligraphers is particularly large.'
