'Vincent Van Gogh'

THE UENO ROYAL MUSEUM

by Yukari Tanaka

Oct. 11-Jan. 13, 2020

During Vincent Van Gogh’s short but eventful life (1853-90), he was active as an artist for just one decade, yet his intense use of colors and bold style continues to inspire artists globally.

Two seminal points in Van Gogh’s career — his life in The Hague and the influence of the Hague School, and his later transition into impressionism — are highlighted in this exhibition that brings together 40 Van Gogh works.

Accompanied by 30 more works by Hague School masters, including Anthonij (Anton) Rudolf Mauve (1838-1888), as well as pieces by other impressionists, such as Claude Monet (1840-1926), the exhibition explores influences on Van Gogh and the development of his own colorful perception of realism.
