Van Gogh and Japan in the Van Gogh Museum
Between March 23 and June 24, 2018, the Van Gogh Museum opens its doors to the Van Gogh & Japan exhibition. Discover how Van Gogh set the Japanese example to his control in this exhibition.
Van Gogh himself has never been to Japan. He became fascinated by Japan during his stay in Paris. At the time, Japanese prints were very popular and Van Gogh also started to collect Japanese printmaking. He got to know the country on the basis of the prints.
Van Gogh used Japanese prints to give his own work a new direction. He was inspired by the exotic performances, unusual compositions and bright color areas.
