Overview

The Garden of Fine Art situated adjacent to the north entrance of Kyoto Prefectural Botanical Gardens seeks to introduce the work of classical artists to a new audience in a modernistic outdoor setting. Billed as 'The first garden of paintings in the world', the Garden of Fine Art was built in 1990 and holds several enlarged ceramic reproductions of the European Old Masters. These include the Last Judgement by Michelangelo and the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, plus works by Monet, Seurat, Renoir and Van Gogh. In addition there are pieces by classical Chinese and Japanese artists. The al fresco gallery is traversed by minimalist concrete walkways and bounded by sheer concrete walls with cooling running water-features flowing horizontally and vertically. Admission JPY100.
