2019 is the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Yokohama Museum of Art and the 160th anniversary of the opening of Yokohama Port. The Art Information Center, titled "Painted Yokohama," is a document that provides information on how foreigners who landed in Japan in the wake of the opening of Yokohama port have understood how Japanese life and customs are perceived. We introduce "The Pedestrian Expedition of Japan" of the expedition of an American Squadron to the China seas and Japan performed in the years 1852, 1853, 1854. On the other hand, Japanese painters left the state of Yokohama, which rapidly westernized and developed from the opening of the port, using traditional ukiyo-e techniques that have been in place since the Edo period. These are called "Yokohama Ukiyo-e" and describe the bustle and traffic of people at that time. We will also introduce materials that contain many representative works of "Yokohama Ukiyo-e".

    Yokohama Museum of Art opened to the public on November 3, 1989. It is one of the largest art institutions in Japan. With its iconic architecture, featuring the expansive space of the Grand Gallery, the museum is made up of a total of seven gallery spaces, as well as an Art Information and Media Center that holds over 110,000 art-related books, ateliers hosting a wide range of workshops for children and adults, and many other facilities.
    Located in the international seaport city of Yokohama, the museum focuses on collecting and showing modern and contemporary art created since the late 19th century, when the port of Yokohama opened, alongside many special exhibitions.
