The composition of art Gallery
A palace, a church, a public hall and so on are always found in the center of a city, and they are built for all citizens to gather. On the road to the city center, stores stand in a row; around them, the citizens lead their daily lives. These three parts are connected each other to be as one. This mechanism was naturally made anywhere on the earth.
When a man tries to make something large-scale, its mechanism will automatically turn out like the city. It does not rule out the Internet because it is created by human beings, and a website will become like a compressed city.
If so, it is right that we should bring in the mechanism of the city into the website on the Internet from the beginning. The vision of art gallery in Mouseion is more refined forerunner of this.

Teruo Sato's Gallery
Teruo Sato was a rare painter who comprehended the methodology of Western Academy in Japan from experience. In Japan there is no tradition of drawing pictures on the basis of strict perception of object form. Thus Sato becomes a heretic in the Orient, and becomes an alien in the Occident.
 However, he tried to seek universal beauty in a Japanese theme, and he is worthy to be called the key man who fuses the art of the Orient and the Occident. Here you can overlook the essence of his OEuvre.
