Van Gogh & Japan

October 24 (Tue), 2017 – January 8 (Mon-holiday), 2018

Van Gogh & Japan Poster
In his Paris and early Arles periods, Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) felt a strong interest in Japan and collected ukiyo-e and literature concerning Japanese culture. It has become known that, after Van Gogh’s death, Japanese artists and intellectuals—enamored by Van Gogh the man and his work—made pilgrimages to his grave in Auvers-sur-Oise in France. This exhibition explores the mutual fascination between Van Gogh and Japan through the artist’s oil paintings, sketches, and other related materials and looks at the magical appeal this subject holds for people today.
