Otsuka Museum of Art Museum Identity

Otsuka Museum of Artsymbol
The visual identity we have introduced since our opening 7 years ago.
The theme color is Lapis lazuli blue, which is highly valued as an extravagant color even among Western masterpieces. Also, the logo represents the ″ceramic board masterpiece collections″ collected by the Otsuka Museum of Art from all over the world.
This blue color is being used extensively in numerous collections representing the Otsuka Museum of Art. For example, many portraits such as Jan Vermeer’s ″Girl with a Pearl Earring″ and the Virgin Mary, are said to be impossible to create without lapis lazuli.
Furthermore, this color means ″over the sea,″ and is also called ″ultramarine blue.″ Surely, the fact that visitors can see many magnificent masterpieces from across the ocean while in Japan speaks for the Otsuka Museum of Art’s idealism.
