Ishikawa Prefectural Museum of Art Reviews
Lors de ma visite j ai eu le sentiment que de multiples œuvres étaient absentes ( ce qui explique mon avis moyen).

The museum presents a wide variety of achievements in the field of ceramics, woodworking (an impressive room of wooden dishes), kimonos (much less than on the museum book) and a series of paintings (difficult to understand the logic). Some works do not even give the name of the artist and the year of creation in English , which makes the visit sometimes uneducational. Beautiful statues. Note that the museum offers beautiful views of the forest in large windows. It is therefore part of the Zen course. if you come from the Suzuki Museum by the way into the forest (walk I loved). Forbidden photos (curious choice)
美術工芸が盛んな石川の県立美術館です、 それほど大きくないのですが、観光客も少ないので静かでゆっくりと観賞できます。 展示物は前田家の古美術、日本画、油彩画、彫刻、工芸などで、人間国宝の作品や古九谷の名品を数多く見ることが出来ます。 野々村仁清の色絵雉香炉と色絵雌雉香炉は「本物だ～」と感動しましたし、色絵梅花図平水差も素晴らしかったです。 古九谷の幾つかの図柄は今もよく見るもので、ずっと作られ続け... more »It is a prefectural museum in Ishikawa where arts and crafts are active, and it is not so big, but there are few tourists, so it is quiet and can be admired slowly. The exhibits include the Maeda family's antiquities, Japanese paintings, oil paintings, sculptures, crafts, and many works of human national treasures and masterpieces of Kokutani. I was impressed by the color edake furnace and the colored female incense furnace of Hitoshi Nonomura, and the color eduma-flower figure hira-mizuno-no-hiwas was also wonderful. Some of the patterns of Furukutani are still common, and you can see that they have been made for a long time.
it's very attractive! KANAZAWA is culture club nice please is here...
Less famous than 21st Century Art museum, but also contains many beautiful art works.
