Influencers: Japonisme and Modern Japan, Scholten Japanese Art
Asia Week March 16-25

Scholten Japanese Art's presents their new 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 attention is turned 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.

Paul Jacoulet (1902-1960), Beauté Japonaise Moderne (Kobé), color woodblock print, obaiban tate-e,
19 x 14 3/4 in. (48.3 by 37.5 cm.)

This is Scholten's largest exhibition to date and includes 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 features paintings and prints with an emphasis on the development of Japanese-style color woodblock printing in the West.

This engaging exhibition can be viewed at the gallery during Asia Week and online now. Read more, click here
