Japanese Collection - WAM's collection of nearly 38,000 objects contains superlative examples representing 51 centuries of creative spirit and cultural heritage, including some of the finest Roman mosaics in the U.S., worldrenowned works of European and American art, and 3,500 Japanese prints documenting the entire history of printmaking in Japan. Since acquiring the Higgins Armory collection in 2013, WAM is now home to the second-largest collection of arms and armor in the Americas, next only to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. WAM was the first museum in the world to purchase a Monet painting of water lilies (1910) and a painting by Gauguin (1921). It was also the first American museum to collect and present photography as fine art, as well as to install an entire work of architecture " a 12th-century Romanesque chapter house " as a permanent exhibit.
