A joint international project with the Van Gogh Museum
Van Gogh and Japan, the Japanese and Van Gogh:
Follow the trajectories of a mutual fascination spanning continents and centuries
Van Gogh's visions of Japan were a major mainstay of his life and art. From an encounter and fascination
with ukiyo-e prints, he went on to shape his own dreams of his imagined wonderland, infusing them with
his ideals and drawing inspiration from them for his singular body of work.
Though his dreams sometimes led to disappointment—such as, for example, with his failed attempt to
found a Japan-inspired artist's community in the south of France—he continued to pursue a connection to
Japan up to the end of his all too brief life.
This definitive catalogue explores the relationship between Van Gogh and Japan through more than 200
rich illustrations and reference to the latest research. Most distinctively, it details the story, told through
material largely presented here for the first time, of the “sequel" to Van Gogh's love of Japan: the
reciprocal admiration for Van Gogh among artists and other Japanese of the early 20th century, many of
whom traveled to Europe to pay homage to the master.
