FOUJITA’S MASTERPIECES
Akita Museum of Art| 秋田県立美術館

Centrally located in Akita, this museum designed by Tadao Ando houses Masakichi Hirano’s collection of significant works by Leonard (Tsuguharu) Foujita (1886-1968), which the local businessman had amassed through a relationship with the expatriate artist in the 1930s. Hirano later established a foundation that eventually merged with the state museum, and today the comprehensive collection includes paintings, watercolors, and sketches.
