Bridge in the Rain by Vincent Van Gogh in 1887

This is a painted copy of a woodcut by the Japanese artist Hiroshige >>> check out the original : Hiroshige’s bridge copied by Van Gogh.
Van Gogh admired the bold designs, intense colours, and flat areas of pure colour and he also appreciated the elegant and simple lines😍.
☝🏻️His copy though has a style of its own. Rather than attempting to imitate the smooth surface of the paper print, Van Gogh used conspicuous brushstrokes. He rendered the water with visible touches, the texture of which clearly reveals that this is paint on canvas. He also chose brighter colours than those in his example.
