MOA Museum of Art

The MOA Museum of Art (エムオーエー美術館, MOA Bijūtsukan) is a private museum in the city of Atami, Japan.

History[edit]

The museum was established in 1982 by the Mokichi Okada Association (MOA) to house the art collection of their founder, multimillionaire and religious leader Mokichi Okada (1882–1955).

Collection[edit]

The collection of the museum consists of approximately 3,500 works of art that include three National Treasures (Red and White Plum Blossoms screen by Ogata Kōrin, Nonomura Ninsei’s Tea-leaf Jar with design or wisteria, and a Calligraphy Album “Tekagami Kanboku-jo” which is an album of ancient calligraphy from the Nara to Muromachi periods), as well as 66 Important Cultural Properties of Japan.

The collection covers a wide span of classical Japanese paintings, hanging scrolls, Japanese sculpture, porcelain and lacquerwork from China and Japan.

The museum also has a reconstruction of the 16th century Golden Tea Room, which was made under the supervision of the architect Sutemi Horiguchi, an expert of sukiya architecture.[1]
