Van Gogh and Japan
'Van Gogh in focus' is a series of books, initiated by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam on the life and work of Vincent van Gogh. These small, compact books examine the artists' oeuvre in different contexts throughout the various stages of his life. This edition explores Van Gogh's love for Japanese graphic art. They seemed to reflect something of his own ideals, and his recognition of their significance for him as an artist had brought about a radical change in his work and a spectacular increase in his abilities.
