The Yamanashi Prefectural Museum of Art, opened in 1978, is proud to be the sanctuary of art in Yamanashi, and since its establishment has been known worldwide for housing a substantial Millet collection.

There are a number of world famous works on display: the important Millet collection--including "The Sower" and "The Return of the Flock"--fine sculptures by Henry Moore, and other collections of Corot, Courbet and Turner. One can also admire great works of Japanese artists, including Yamanashi natives.

In the quiet, relaxing atmosphere of the wine colored building, visitors can always enjoy avideo about Millet’s life and work.
