Nagoya: Boston Museum of Fine Arts

It is the sister museum of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (the MFA) and was established in partnership with the Foundation for the Arts, Nagoya (FAN) partly to help bring the treasures of the MFA's collection, particularly those of types rarely exhibited in Japan, to the country. The museum formally opened on April 17, 1999.

Each year, the MFA, Boston sends two five-month loan exhibitions to the Nagoya museum; longer-term, five year exhibits are also provided. Despite the desire of N/BMFA's curators to display primarily Japanese and Impressionist art, the MFA, Boston has insisted on a more wide-ranging display. A small number of items are, nevertheless, sent regularly for the Nagoya museum's "Japanese corner".  - Wikipedia
