Looking East, Western Artists and the Allure of Japan from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, at Setagaya Art Museum, Tokyo

28th June - 15th September, 2014 | Setagaya Art Museum, Tokyo   From the latter half of the 19th century to the early 20th century, Japanese art, especially ukiyo-e prints, enjoyed great popularity in the West. Its bold compositions and vivid colors sparked a fundamental revolution in the aesthetic sensibility of the West, leading to the trend known as Japonisme. This exhibition presents approximately 150 objects, including paintings, photographs, and decorative arts from the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. A highlight of the show is Claude Monet’s La Japonaise, which is being exhibited for the first time since recent conservation. From a variety of perspectives, the show examines what Western artists learned from Japan and how it affected leading artistic movement of the era, such as Impressionism.   official website ››  http://www.setagayaartmuseum.or.jp/exhibition/exhibition_e.html
