The Ōtsuka Museum of Art (大塚国際美術館, Ōtsuka Kokusai Bijutsukan) in Naruto, Tokushima Prefecture is an art museum founded in 1998 and is one of the largest exhibition spaces in Japan.[1] It houses over a thousand full-size ceramic reproductions of major works of art, including the Sistine Chapel, Scrovegni Chapel, triclinium of the Villa of the Mysteries, and Guernica.[2][3] The works are transfer-printed from photographs before being fired and retouched.[4][5] A robot named 'Mr Art' gives hour-long gallery talks.[6] The museum cost industrialist Masahito Ōtsuka $400,000,000.[7]
