A craze for all things Japanese beginning in the late nineteenth century brought a radical shift in Western art that came to be known as japonisme. The art and culture of Japan inspired leading artists, including Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet, to create works of renewed vision and singular beauty. Looking East explores this phenomenon through a selection of major paintings, prints, drawings, and decorative arts from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, presenting masterpieces by European and American artists alongside rare works of art in the Museum's renowned Japanese collection. With essays that illuminate both Western and Eastern perspectives and explore shared themes, this lavishly illustrated publication invites readers to experience the sense of discovery and excitement created by an extraordinary moment of cross-cultural exchange.


Looking East: Western Artists and the Allure of Japan. Hardcover, 128 page's, 86 colour illustrations.
