Japonisme: When East Met West
Jul 16, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$10.00
The opening of international trade with Japan had a significant impact on the artwork made in Europe and the United States during the latter half of the 19th century. We will explore the influences and subsequent changes in western art as artists began to incorporate motifs and aesthetic principles from these newly imported items. The term Japonisme was coined to describe this phenomenon.
