Vincent van Gogh, "De brug in de regen (naar Hiroshige)." in the Van Gogh Museum. In this painting, van Gogh was working closely with a Japanese print he found beautiful. The border is entirely falsified--shapes and symbols he thought looked Japanese. Japonisme, European art that attempted to copy the influx of art coming from Japan, was very popular during van Gogh's period.
This painting reminds me of my Gma Harper making the quilts that I am so blessed to still have for the wonderful use my children enjoy and my very favorite spread. Ty gma. I miss you and hope you have enjoyed your first decade of eternity. XsOs Vincent van Gogh
