All Ages

Enjoy one, two, three or four of the fabulously free documentaries showing as part of our first-ever documentary festival.

The second documentary we will be showing is Van Gogh & Japan.

“I envy the Japanese,” Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo. In the exhibition on which this film is based – Van Gogh & Japan at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam – one can see why. Though Vincent van Gogh never visited Japan it is the country that had the most profound influence on him and his art.

Van Gogh’s encounter with Japanese artworks gave his work a new and exciting direction.

In this little-known story of Van Gogh’s art, we see just how important his study of Japan was. The film travels not only to France and the Netherlands but also to Japan to further explore the remarkable heritage that so affected Van Gogh and made him the artist we know of today.

Phone Richmond Library 543 8500 to book your spot or talk to a library staff member.
