A fascinating look at how Japan had a profound influence on Van Gogh and his art.

Japanese art arrived in Paris in the middle of the 19th century, and had a huge impact on artists like Monet, Degas and, above all, Van Gogh. Visiting the new galleries of Japanese art in Paris and then creating his own image of Japan, through in-depth research, print collecting and detailed discussions with other artists, Van Gogh's encounter with Japanese artworks gave his work a new and exciting direction.
