Gauguin and Hiroshige
We have Japanese prints on the one hand and a painting by Paul Gauguin on the other, yet these works share certain affinities: their areas of flat colour, the absence of any interplay of shadow and light, and their frontal presentation. Japanese prints were very popular with European artists in the second half of the 19th century. Paul Gauguin drew on their conventions to cultivate his vision, which ran counter to the modernist conceptions of a Europe in full industrial expansion.
