This online session 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 Impressionism and Post-Impressionism styles.
Throughout the lecture, examples of western modernist art will be juxtaposed with Japanese prints to demonstrate the way European artists adopted and interpreted Japanese aesthetics.
Artists featured include Monet, Manet, van Gogh, Gauguin, Whistler, Cassatt, Klimt among others.
