[...] Si on étudie l’art japonais alors on voit un homme 
incontestablement sage et philosophe et intelligent qui passe son temps  –  à quoi – à étudier la distance de la terre à la lune – non, à étudier la politique de Bismarck – non, 
il étudie un seul brin d’herbe.
Mais ce brin d’herbe lui porte à dessiner toutes les plantes 
– ensuite les saisons, les grands aspects des paysages, 
enfin les animaux, puis la figure humaine. Il passe ainsi sa vie, et la vie est trop courte, à faire le tout.Voyons cela, n’est ce pas presque une vraie religion ce que nous enseignent ces japonais si simples et qui vivent dans la nature comme si eux mêmes étaient des fleurs. 
Et on ne saurait étudier l’art japonais, il me semble, sans devenir beaucoup plus gai et plus heureux et cela nous fait revenir à la nature malgré notre éducation et notre travail dans un monde de convention.»
lettre de Vincent Van Gogh à son frère Théo 1888   
If we study Japanese art, then we see a man, undoubtedly wise and a philosopher and intelligent, who spends his time — on what? — studying the distance from the earth to the moon? — no; studying Bismarck’s politics? — no, he studies a single blade of grass. But this blade of grass leads him to draw all the plants — then the seasons, the broad features of landscapes, finally animals, and then the human figure. He spends his life like that, and life is too short to do everything. Just think of that; isn’t it almost a new religion that these Japanese teach us, who are so simple and live in nature as if they themselves were flowers? And we wouldn’t be able to study Japanese art, it seems to me, without becoming much happier and more cheerful, and it makes us return to nature, despite our education and our work in a world of convention.
