Japanese Prints: The Collection of Vincent van Gogh
Member's price $54.00
Showcases and analyses highlights from Van Gogh's collection of Japanese prints, exploring the key role they played in his creative output.
In the winter of 1886-87, during his stay in Paris, Vincent van Gogh bought 660 Japanese prints at the art gallery of Siegfried Bing. His aim was to start dealing in them, but the exhibition he organized in the café-restaurant Le Tambourin was a total failure. However, he was now able to study his collection at ease and in close-up, and he gradually became captivated by their colourful, cheerful and unusual imagery.
