"Japonisme is not just a style ; it does not lend itself to being used as a concept in place of a style, and it cannot be pinned down to a specific period," Siegfried Wichmann, 1981. This volume abounds in beautiful art known as Japonisme. In 1872, French author and collector, Philippe Burty used the term 'to designate a new field of study of artistic, historic and ethnographic borrowings from the arts of Japan'. The catalyst for the phenomenon of Japonisme was the opening up of Japan to international trade in 1858. Contents include the Historical Survey ; Japan and the Painters ; Landscape and Gardens ; Coda : Floating World or Moving Image? and much more. NEAR FINE in Near Fine Dustjacket.

Sinopsis: Coined by a French art critic in 1876, the term Japonisme was used to describe the craze for all things Japanese. Van Gogh copied Ukiyo-e prints, and art nouveau potters introduced flowing, organic themes, first seen in Japanese ceramics. This book presents a broad survey of the West's extraordinary love affair with Japan, beginning with the first contacts in the sixteenth century, and culminating in the artistic frenzy that swept Europe and America in the second half of the nineteenth century. For the first time, Lionel Lambourne also uncovers the countercurrent of Western influence on Japan. The book reviews not only the fine and the decorative arts but also interior decoration, costume and fashion accessories, literature and the theatre, travel, and gardens and plants
Biografía del autor: Lionel Lambourne was head of paintings at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, from 1986-1993. He has traveled widely as curator of exhibitions in Britain, Germany and Japan, and has had a long-standing interest in the dialogue between Japan and the West. His books include The Aesthetic Movement (1996) and Victorian Painting (1999), both published by Phaidon.
