Presented by Simon Kelly, curator of modern and contemporary art, Saint Louis Art Museum The Post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh was intensely fascinated with the art and culture of Japan. Over the course of his career, Van Gogh painted copies of Japanese ukiyo-e prints and collected a range of Japanese art. Join lecturer Simon Kelly for a talk that examines the impact of japonisme on the artistic development of Van Gogh, including his use of the formal devices of ukiyo-e and the parallels that Van Gogh drew between Japan and the Provence region of France.

The lecture proper begins at 4:00 minutes! The speaker notes that the van Gogh museum administration maintains that Vincent did, in fact, shoot himself and was not shot by a group of harassing local boys. Where is their evidence? I don’t think there is any more compelling proof that he shot himself than that he was accidentally or intentionally shot by others.

He sold more than One painting and drawings, exact nummer is not clear. The One he sold is the red wineyard to a dealer in London. And he sold 19 drawings to his uncle which was a art dealer in the Netherlands. But he swap a lot with other artist, and many where send to his brother Theo.
