Van Gogh & Japan
Painting | Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan | Tuesday 24 October 2017 - Monday 8 January 2018
Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was profoundly interested in Japan. From his Paris period to his early days in Arles, he collected ukiyo-e prints and writings on Japanese culture. Conversely, Japanese artists and intellectuals became enamored of Van Gogh after his death and made pilgrimages to his grave in Auvers-sur-Oise in France. Through some 40 of Van Gogh’s oil paintings and sketches plus 50 works by Japanese ukiyo-e artists and Van Gogh’s contemporaries, and abundant historical materials, this exhibition explores the mutual fascination between Van Gogh and Japan, and presents fascinating new perspectives.
