Although Vincent van Gogh never visited Japan it is the country that had the most profound influence on him and his art. In the exhibition on which this film is based – VAN GOGH & JAPAN at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam – one can see why Van Gogh envied Japan.
In this little known story of Van Gogh’s art we see just how important his study of Japan was. The film travels to Japan, France and the Netherlands to further explore the remarkable heritage that so affected Van Gogh and made him the artist we know of today.
