Item description for Japanese Prints: Catalogue of the Van Gogh Museum Collection by Curators at The Van Gogh Museum...
The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam keeps a unique collection of almost 500 Japanese prints. The majority of these come from the collection of Vincent van Gogh and his brother Theo. The collection contains some important prints as well as entire series by major 19th-century Japanese masters such as Kunisada, Kuniyoshi and Hiroshige. The collection reveals how deeply Van Gogh was influenced by Japanese art and culture. The striking colour contrasts and daring compositions were Van Gogh's guidelines in his quest for a personal contribution that he could make to the development of modern art.
