Japan has influenced several artists including Monet, Degas, and Manet, and had an intense impact on Van Gogh as well. The Dutch prodigy declared his affinity for Japanese art by stating how it took him back to nature, which always brought happiness, despite living in a world of convention.

Ukiyo-e prints were a major spectacle to Van Gogh as he, along with his brother Theo, dealt with these wooden block prints for quite some time, eventually leading to a collection of hundreds of these paintings that are now stored in Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum.

Ukiyo-e Prints

The significant attributes of ukiyo-e woodblock prints include emphasis on decorative patterns, bold outlines, uniform lighting, and flat regions of uniform colour, to name a few. You can find one or more of these elements in Van Gogh’s paintings from his Antwerp era.

Paris Illustré Le Japon

The 1886 May cover of Paris Illustré featured Kesaï Eisen’s Oiran—courtesan in Japanese. This simple painting led Van Gogh to make his unique and more vibrant version of the same, with his personal touch that features other elements inspired from Ukiyo-e art.

The Courtesan

A stunning piece of art that leaves its viewer awe-struck, this painting depicts a Japanese courtesan whose beauty is intensified by her mysterious expression. Intricate details have been portrayed on her flowing robe and ornate headdress.

The marvel is amplified by the vivid strokes that can be seen in the lake setting in the background, which features painted storks, lotuses, frogs, and two passersby in a boat—all designs authentic to Japan.
