Located in the heart of downtown among the greenery of Central Park, the Hiroshima Museum of Art was built in November 1978 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the founding of Hiroshima Bank. Their permanent collection is home to roughly 90 pieces of European contemporary art from legendary artists like Millet, Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, and Chagall. It is also home to works from contemporary Japanese artists influenced by western art like Seiki Kuroda, Chū Asai, and Takeji Fujishima, as well as traditional Japanese artists such as Seihō Takeuchi and Taikan Yokoyama.
