Gogh "The artist on the road to Tarascon"
I disappear in Arles in production 1945 in 1888
It was Sue board, and it reappeared and opened it to the public from November 3, 2018, and permanent construction displayed whole body Self-portrait "The artist on the road to Tarascon" of the Gogh one and only that the Otsuka Museum of Art followed strange fate in the middle of World War II, and disappeared to the actual size.
Kaiser Friedrich Museum of city Magdeburg of former East Germany (existing Magdeburg culture history Museum) possessed this work and evacuated it in the huge salt mine in the depth of approximately 460m below ground to escape from an air strike in 1943 of the last years of World War II. Afterwards, this ground was released by U.S. forces, and some works were discovered, but this work has disappeared like an art without being found. It is said that what a further basement searches for is impossible without being allowed even to look for destination until East-West unification of 1990 in Germany because it was East Germany domain because it is dangerous to what enter the salt mine now.

It is the second work since fantastic "Sunflower" of Gogh that it reappeared in 2014 at this time that reproduces the masterpiece that Otsuka Museum of Art was lost. Because I can store the Ceramic Art Board semipermanently without a color being discolored, I think that I can contribute to the way of the record preservation of not only the appreciation experience at the actual size but also the cultural assets very much.

Gogh who moved to Arles from Paris in 1888 is attracted by Monma Joule monastery and the neighboring scenery to rise on the small hill and writes it down in the letter to younger brother Theo saying "I visited this ground 50 times" or more. It is thought with a figure on the way that the popular name which is a house at the time goes out in sketching as for the Self-portrait drawn on this work to the monastery through tarasukon way from "a yellow house".
