Japanese prints

Vincent van Gogh discovered Japanese colour woodcuts (ukiyo-e) during his time in Paris, an encounter that would have a decisive impact on the development of his art in the years that followed. He bought hundreds of the prints at once and was soon captivated by their colourful and cheerful imagery and style. Gradually this enchanted world became Van Gogh’s main artistic reference point.
