THE COURTESAN A New Play by Dmae Roberts Premieres in January
by BWW News Desk - Dec 19, 2016

In 2012,  Dmae Roberts visited the Van Gogh museum and saw all these Japanese prints.  She was surprised they to find the prints included in the museum. Then Roberts realized these paintings were Van Gogh's copies of Japanese wood-block prints.
