JAPONISME: The Influence of Japanese Prints in Western Modern Art - Online Nov 29

This will look briefly at the historical context in which Japanese prints arrived in Europe in the 1850’s, before looking in greater detail at the influence they had on Modern Art movements. With their simple lines, flattened perspective and unusual colour juxtapositions, the eastern reproductions began to play an important role in the development of visual arts. Artists featured included Monet, van Gogh, Gauguin among others. Presented by Corcovado Arts
