The Shimane Art Museum (島根県立美術館) opened in Matsue, Shimane Prefecture, Japan in 1999. Designed by Kiyonori Kikutake and with a total floor area of 12,500 square metres, it houses a collection of Japanese and Western art, including Momoyama folding screens and paintings by Corot, Sisley, Monet, and Gauguin.
In March 1999 Shimane Art Museum opened its doors, revealing an art museum that was “open to the residents of Shimane Prefecture,” “supportive of artistic activities” and “in harmony with water.” Situated in a superb location by Lake Shinji, the Museum is committed to the promotion and development of art as a 21st century cultural center.
