The Museum and its HistoryIn May, 1990, Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art was built on the grounds of the DIC Central Research Laboratory located in Sakura City, Chiba Prefecture to exhibit the artworks collected by DIC Corporation and its affiliated companies. As of the present, it has acquired over 1,000 works. Katsumi Kawamura, The companys second president and later first Director of the Museum Katsumi Kawamura, the companys second president and later first director of the museum, deeply loved art, and enjoyed nothing more than contemplating artwork and during what spare moments he could take from work. Beginning in the 1970s, the museum began to seriously collect art, and amassed a remarkable selection of 20th-century art: Picasso, Braque, Kandinsky, Malevich, Cornell, and others. Of equal note, is that the museum was also interested in up-and-coming American paintersLouis, Stella, and otherswho were unknown at this time in Japan, yet highly regarded in Europe, and began to collect their paintings and works. When Kawamura Katsumis long-held dream of establishing a museum was realised, the museum began to collect works of importance in American art history, such as Rothkos murals and various works by Stella, thus laying the foundations of todays collection. The museum has expanded its collection with the 17th-century Dutch master Rembrandts portrait, and Japanese paintings by Yokoyama Taikan and Hashimoto Kansetsu, both of their works embodying the unique Japanese sense of nature and space. This addition of the Japanese works allows a broad range of people to enjoy the museums collection.List of Worksmille-Antoine Bourdelle: FruitPierre Auguste Renoir: BatherClaude Monet: Waterlilies Pablo Picasso: Woman in an ArmchairMarc Chagall: King Davids DreamRembrandt van Rijn: Portrait of a Man in a Broad Brimmed HatNaum Gabo: Linear Construction No.1 (Variation)Anonymous: Namban Screen Korin Ogata: Willows and Water Birds Kansetsu Hashimoto: Song of the LuteKansetsu Hashimoto: MulanKurt Schwitters: Untitled (Intersected Egg), Untitled (Colored Half-Moon), Untitled (Birchwood Sculpture), Untitled (Opening Blossom), Untitled (Pebble Sculpture)Joseph Cornell: Untitled (Le Piano)Joseph Cornell: Celestial Navigation by BirdsAlexander Calder: Four White DotsMark Rothko: Seagram MuralsAd Reinhardt: Abstract Painting Robert Ryman: Assistant Jackson Pollock: Composition on Green, Black, and Tan Frank Stella: Tomlinson Court Part (second version) Frank Stella: Merry Christmas 3X (third version)Music WorksMaurice Ravel: The Fairy Garden from Mother Goose suite Mel Bonis: Tonight, from Tonight, Morning for Piano Trio op. 76 Pavane dan Vers from The Susanne van Soldt Virginal BookWolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Piano Sonata K. 545 (Joseph Cornell: Untitled (Le Piano) music box recording)Eric Satie: The Mysterious Kiss in the Eye from The Beautiful EccentricBohuslav Martin: Adagio from Duo for Violin and Violoncello in D major, No.2, H371 A CD of the musical works included in this guide is available through Mercury Inc.
