Van Gogh in Japan at the Hop
Exhibition on Screen

Van Gogh and Japan

July 14, 2019

This event occurred as part of the 19/20 Art On Screen season. This is an archived view.

The little-known story of Van Gogh’s love affair with Japan and its profound influence on his work.

19/20 Art On Screen

Though Vincent van Gogh never visited Japan, it is the country that had the most profound influence on him and his art. Discovering Japanese art in Paris in the mid-1900s stirred his creative juices: he bought over 600 prints, researched and interviewed artists, and created his own image of the country. Vivid traditional woodcuts became a huge inspiration as Van Gogh bent the Japanese style to his own will. Based on an exhibition of the same name at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, this film tells a little-known chapter in the evolution of the master we know today. D: David Bickerstaff, 2019, UK
