This is a handcrafted reimagining of Vincent van Gogh’s timeless Starry night combined with Katsushika Hokusai’s the great Wave off Kanagawa . Despite coming from very different cultures on distant continents, van Gogh and Japanese artist Hokusai had a significant amount in common. As Japan began to open up and trade with the West during the 19th century, artistic influence moved in both directions. Hokusai’s paintings and prints began to incorporate Western techniques like realistic perspective, chiaroscuro shading, and an increased focus on common or everyday subjects. In turn, a flood of Japanese woodblock prints entered Europe and began a fashionable trend known as . Van Gogh and others were inspired by this newly found style and he even made several copies of works by printmaker Hiroshige. Add in their perfectly matched color palettes, filled with nautical blue-greens, and it’s easy to see why these two pieces fit so well in this original collage.
