Fukushima, Tohoku

Fukushima Kenritsu Bijutsukan is located in the foothills of Shinobu-yama, a mountain in the northern suburbs of the city of Fukushima, Fukushima Prefecture. Situated on an expansive site more than 60,000 square meters in area, the windowless reddish-brown building, connected to the Prefectural Library, has a design reflecting traditional Japanese houses. An exhibit room featuring American painting includes works by the painters Reginald Mache, representing 20th century social realism in the United States, Ben Shahn, famous for such works as We Want Peace, and Andrews Wyeth, the realistic landscape painter known for his precise and detailed technique. The museums collection also includes oil paintings and sketches by Shoji Sekine, a local Fukushima painter who died at just twenty years of age.’
