From the Collection of the Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art How Western are Western-style Paintings Made in Japan?: From Takahashi Yuichi to Contemporary Painters

January 3-March 20, 2017

Both Vincent van Gogh (1853-90) and Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) lived in the 19th century during an age of innovative painting that followed the rise of Impressionism. While at times Van Gogh, who approached nature by imbuing it with his own ideals and subjective views, and Gauguin, who depicted imaginary worlds, clashed violently, they also influenced each other and enhanced each other’s work. By carefully examining the artists’ early works and friendship, their first meeting in Paris, their life together in Arles, and the works they made in the wake of the breakdown of this living arrangement, this exhibition looks at the differences and similarities between their ideas about art, and the lasting influence they had on each other even after they drifted apart. The exhibition, the first event to focus on the relationship between Van Gogh and Gauguin ever held in Japan, promises to shed new light on the relationship between the two artists and their work.
