Japonaiserie: Plum tree in Bloom (after Hiroshige).
Name: Japonaiserie: Plum tree in Bloom (after Hiroshige). Artist: Vincent van Gogh Location: Vincent van Gogh Foundation, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Year: 1887
Vincent first became interested in Japanese woodcuts in 1985. When he moved to Paris he started his own collection and was profoundly influenced. He incorporated much brighter colours into his work. This painting is a good example of van Gough's determination to explore all possibilities of creating image.
