Art Exhibition Film: VAN GOGH AND JAPAN
Van Gogh & Japan journeys from the critically acclaimed exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, to the beauty of Provence and the enigma of Japan itself. Featuring Van Goghs personal letters and written accounts by friends and contemporaries this extraordinary and moving film reveals the fascinating story of Van Goghs little-known deep connection to Japanese art, despite never travelling to Japan himself, and the role it has in understanding his most iconic works. As well as investigating the expression of Van Goghs japonisme, the film explores how Japanese society have developed an affinity to Van Goghs work as a result of his engagement with their culture.
Featuring insights from contemporary artists, including calligrapher Tomoko Kawao and performance artist Tatsumi Orimoto, Van Gogh & Japan provides revealing and modern perspectives on the rich, symbiotic relationship between Van Gogh and Japan.
