Fall Fashion Trend: Japonisme (various Artists)


 

Japonisme, a French term also used in English, refers to the influence of the arts of Japan on those of the West.

The word was first used by Jules Claretie in his book L’Art Francais en 1872.

The widespread interest in all things Japanese–art, furnishings, costume, etc.–blossomed after the opening of Japan to Western trade in 1853-54.

Western woman began adopting Japanese fashions & portrait painters were excited by the new color & patterns these costumes presented.

The color harmonies, simple designs, asymmetrical compositions, & flat

forms of Japanese wood block prints strongly influenced the composition of Impressionist & Post-Impressionist art.
