We are proud to announce on our facade the major international exhibtion ‘ Van Gogh & Japan ’ on the infuence of Japanese art on the work of Vincent van Gogh in the Van Gogh Museum.
The show, which will comprise around 60 paintings and drawings by Van Gogh and a rich selection of Japanese prints, will highlight the painter’s all-embracing admiration for this art and how fundamentally his work changed in response to it. Exceptional loans from museums and private collections from all over the world will be brought to Amsterdam, including Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear, 1889 (The Courtauld Gallery, London), a fragile work that has not left the UK since 1955 and has not been in The Netherlands since 1930.
Other highlights include Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait, 1888 (Fogg Art Museum, Harvard Art Museums, Cambridge, MA), Portrait of Madame Roulin (La Berceuse), 1889 (Art Institute of Chicago), Undergrowth with Two Figures, 1890 (Cincinnati Art Museum), La Crau with Peach Trees in Blossom, 1889 (The Courtauld Gallery, London) and The Arlésienne (Madame Ginoux), 1888 (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York). This is the first time that an exhibition on such a scale has been organized on this theme.More news
