From April to July, Osaka Prefecture asked its citizens to vote on their favorite paintings from 100 masterpieces owned by museums in the area. The project attracted ballots from 8,371 people, who voted the most popular work to be "Postman" by Yuzo Saeki (1898-1928), a renowned Japanese painter from Meiji and Taisho eras. Other top-ranking artists included Amedeo Clemente Modigliani and Marie Laurencin, while Kansai-based artists Yasumasa Morimura and Kenji Yanobe also scored high.

Spanning a wide range of genres, works on display are testament to our perceived subjectivity of art; Sept. 15-Nov. 25.

Osaka Museum of Modern Art, Shinsaibashi Exhibition Hall; (06) 6644-4894; 3-4-26 Minamisenba, chuo-ku, Osaka; Shinsaibashi Station, Midosuji Line. 11 a.m.-7 p.m. ¥ 500. Closed Wed, Oct 21. www.city.osaka. lg.jp/yutoritomidori/page/0000166029.html .
