Vincent van Gogh’s Japonism serie

Japonism is a style or a subject in an artwork, from a country that’s not Japan. Which is, of course, inspired by the old Japanese art. It was very popular in the seventh century, but it was re-opened in the 19th. Our friend Vincent has done a beautiful serie which belongs to (re-opened) Japonism.

Courtesan (after Eisen)  (1887)

Flowering Plum Tree (after Hirosege) (1887)

Bridge in the Rain (after Hirosege) (1887)

I think it’s wonderful to see something else than van Gogh’s typical postimpressionist paintings – though they are absolutely beautiful as well.
