Scholten Japanese Art is proud to announce our upcoming exhibition as part of Asia Week New York, Influencers: Japonisme and Modern Japan, an exploration of the influence of Japanese art on Western art and the development of modern international art modes such as art nouveau and art deco.
In March of last year, the Asia Week exhibition at Scholten Japanese Art examined the impact of the West on Japanese art and culture during the Meiji Period (1868-1912). This year we turn our attention in the opposite direction to consider the influence of Japanese art on the West, popularly known as Japonisme, while also contemplating the subsequent effect of influences traveling in both directions, resulting in the blending of art modes into an international style.
This is our largest exhibition to date, including 102 works presented in two sections, with 44 works in the Part 1, and 58 works in Part 2. The international roster of artists includes representation by important French, Austrian, German, British, American and Japanese artists, and includes paintings and prints with an emphasis on the development of Japanese-style color woodblock printing in the West.
