From Japan To The World

Coined by Jules Claretie in his book L’Art Francais, Japonaiseris is a french term that refers to the enthusiasm of Japanese Art and the way it influenced artists in the West. Vincent Van Gogh was no stranger to traditional Japanese woodblock printing. He had collected numerous Japanese prints from art dealers in and around Paris and used to study them in great detail. There was a certain allure that lay in the use of intricate patterns, colour, and flat perspectives of Japanese art. Apart from Van Gogh, artists like Monet and Degas were also heavily influenced by these woodblock prints.

An Exercise In Creative Subtlety

This piece was painted by Van Gogh on canvas. However, to retain the proportions of the original art by Hiroshige, Van Gogh had to add a border which consisted of a few letters from Japanese. The colours used by Van Gogh are also a little more vibrant than the original. The predominantly grey background gets replaced with green water, a blue sky, and pale pink bridge supports. As for the lines and brushstrokes, Van Gogh ditched the strong overtones of Hiroshige for soft strokes which depict the mistiness of the rain.

Current Value Of Bridge In The Rain

It’s hard to quote an accurate price for this piece from Van Gogh. A few other paintings produced by him during this period have been valued at prices ranging from USD 82.6 million to USD 103.8 million.
