One of the most influential post-Impressionist painters the world has ever known and an artist whose biographical details are almost as famous as his iconic pieces such as 'The Starry Night' and 'Sunflowers', Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) drew plenty of inspiration from Japanese art. That strain of the Dutch master's creativity is explored in great detail at the Metropolitan Art Museum's 'Van Gogh & Japan', a two-part exhibition that surveys both old Vincent's Japonism and Japanese people's love for the artist. You'll get to pore over around 40 works by van Gogh himself, plus up to 50 pieces said to have inspired him and an extensive selection of materials detailing Japanese artists and art lovers' pursuit of their hero.
