Vincent Van Gogh and Japanese Prints

June 27 @ 12:15 pm1:00 pm

After new trade agreements were struck between Japanese and western merchants in 1853, a fascination with all things Japanese swept Europe. Throughout the second half of the 19th century, many western artists sourced inspiration from aesthetics of Japanese art, especially woodblock prints. Writing to his brother from Antwerp in 1885, Van Gogh explained that he had pinned a number of Japanese prints to the walls of his studio. This lecture will explore Van Gogh’s interest in Japanese prints and their influence on his art.
