VAN GOGH & JAPAN

The award-winning series that explores the biographies of history’s most revered artists, brings a new exhibition 'Van Gogh & Japan'.

Screening exclusively at the Eden Cinemas on Tuesday 4th June and Sunday 9th June.

Van Gogh & Japan journeys from the critically acclaimed exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, to the beauty of Provence and the enigma of Japan itself.

Featuring Van Gogh’s personal letters and written accounts by friends and contemporaries this extraordinary and moving film reveals the fascinating story of Van Gogh’s little-known deep connection to Japanese art, despite never travelling to Japan himself, and the role it has in understanding his most iconic works.

David Bickerstaff, Director of Van Gogh & Japan, comments: “The brilliant thing about working on a film about Van Gogh is the richness of insight one can gain from his letters and just looking closely at his artworks. You think you know them – they are famous, but with every viewing they reveal something new. It is the pursuit of a powerful simplicity that attracted Vincent van Gogh to the art of Japan, and the Japanese to his story.”
