Late 19th century Europe and especially France became captivated by Japanese art following an exhibition of Ukiyo-e prints and Japanese crafts at the World’s Fair. This eventually led to the avid collection of Japanese art by Europe’s artists and affluent classes.
“Japonisme,” a great influence on the artists of that period.
Though it is well-known that Van Gogh and Monet were collectors of Ukiyo-e, the influence of Japonisme can also be seen in works by glass craftsman such as Émile Gallé and the Daum brothers.
Traditional Japanese patterns, hues, free-form animal and plant motifs, and a composition distinct from realism … the presence of these themes in many of the remaining works by Gallé and the Daum brothers suggest that these artists had Ukiyo-e or Hokusai Manga close at hand during their creative process.
In this exhibition, works of Art Nouveau glass will be displayed alongside the Ukiyo-e prints that they were influenced by.
