Entrance of museum
The museum collects, houses, and preserves a collection of art which include Impressionists, Post-Impressionists and twentieth-century art by Japanese, European and American artists. Ceramic works from Ancient Greece are also featured.
In 50 years, the collection has expanded. In 1980, the Museum gained international attention when it purchased Pablo Picasso's Saltimbanque Seated with Arms Crossed. In 1987, the Museum bought Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Mlle Georgette Charpentier Seated.
