SpotCollection of Yokoyama Taikan

Adachi Museum of Art was founded in 1970 by Adachi Zenko (1899-1990), a businessperson from this area. Starting out in business from his earlier years, he successfully developed various enterprises after starting from practically nothing, experiencing many vicissitudes along the way. While operating his businesses, he collected Japanese paintings that he had been interested in from a young age. In particular, he was fascinated by Yokoyama Taikan (1868-1958), who leaves a name that will live forever in the history of modern Japanese art. The museum houses 1,300 works by masters of modern Japanese painting. Among them, the more than 130 pieces by Yokoyama Taikan that the museum houses are number one in collections in Japan in terms of both quality and quantity.
