Van Gogh & Japan - Exhibition on Screen

From the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam

Exhibition on Screen takes a look at Van Gogh & Japan, giving an insight into the profound influence of Japan on the artist and his work.

In the exhibition on which this film is based - Van Gogh & Japan at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam - one can see the profound influence of Japan on the artist and his work. After leaving Paris for the south of France – to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find - the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors.
 
In this little known story of Van Gogh’s art we see just how important his study of Japan was. The film travels not only to France and the Netherlands but also to Japan to further explore the remarkable heritage that so affected Van Gogh and made him the artist we know of today.
