Van Gogh and Japan

"I envy the Japanese," Van Gogh once wrote to his brother Theo. In the exhibition on which this film is based – Van Gogh & Japan – at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, one can see why. Though Van Gogh never visited Japan, the country had the most profound influence on him and his art. One cannot understand Van Gogh without understanding how Japanese art arrived in Paris in the middle of the 19th century and the profound impact it had 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. After leaving Paris for the south of France, to a place he thought was 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.
