This March our booth features highlights from our March Asia Week gallery presentation, 'Influencers: Japonisme and Modern Japan.'

Popularly known as 'Japonisme' (a term coined by prominent French critic, Philippe Burty, in 1872) the style describes the popularity and influence of Japanese art and design on artists in Europe, Britain and the United States during the late 19th and 20th centuries, as artists began incorporating the flat, colorful, and stylized subject matter of Japanese ukiyo-e prints in their own works. The influence of Japanese art in the West would further lead to the development of modern international art modes such as art nouveau and art deco, and the subsequent influence of the Western artists on Japanese artists at the time, resulted in the blending of art modes into a truly international style.

This online booth presentation includes works by some of the most prominent of these artists, including Emile Orlik (Austrian, 1879-1932), Mortimer Menpes (British, 1955-1938), Bertha Lum (American, 1869-1954), Helen Hyde (American, 1868-1919), and Charles Bartlett (British, 1960-1940), among others, who were instrumental in the development of Japanese style color woodblock printing in the West.
