About Van Gogh's "Sunflower"

1987 May 3The Yasuda Fire at that time was held in London, EnglandChristie'sIt was exhibited as a highlight in the sponsored auctionVan Goghof"sunflowerWas awarded for about 53 billion yen. The successful bid for "Sunflower" was made in the same yearMay 7ToNaritaArrived at. The flight numbers and arrival times of the planes were not disclosed because they were only valuable paintings. And at Seiji Togo MuseumMay 10When it was opened to the public, the number of visitors exceeded 3 in just half a month, and it was a great success, exceeding the annual number of visitors (about 5) of the museum until then.

The price of the painting was about 53 billion yen, and it took about 58 billion yen including the auction fee and insurance fee, but there was also a critical opinion that the large amount of money was used.[46].. First of all, criticism that the international price of paintings has risen because of Japanese companies because "Sunflower" was a precedent because it was too expensive. And criticism that it is too much money to expose Japan to the world. Furthermore, there are criticisms that concern the impact of huge investment in fields not directly related to management as an insurance company on the evaluation of the entire company. However, despite the large number of Japanese and Japanese companies purchasing art at high prices during this boom, compared to the fact that almost all of them flowed overseas during the subsequent recession, It can be said that, given that the museum is still owned by the museum until now, it has made a reasonable social contribution to these criticisms.[47].

Van Gogh has seven sunflowers in the world. Van Gogh draws with the same composition, and the big difference that is easy to understand is the number of sunflowers in the jar, which is 6 patterns, 3 patterns, 12 patterns. The current SOMPO Museum has 15 sunflower versions, the largest in size, measuring 3 meter in height and 15 cm in width, and is said to be the brightest yellow sunflower. Compared to "Himawari" in other museums, "Himawari" in this museum has uncertainties in its history, and because it has no signature, there was a counterfeit theory.[48].. However, according to a survey by curators and conservative engineers of the Van Gogh Museum, it is reported that it is a true work, although there are traces of addition by others.[49].
