The wave that swept the world: Hokusai, Japonisme and the west by British Museum

http://ift.tt/2s0RiDL

From Monet, Van Gogh and Degas to Whistler, Warhol and Hockney, Hokusai and his contemporary Japanese artists have had a profound impact on western art.

This panel discussion, chaired by John Reeve, Fellow, Institute of Education London, discusses the phenomenon of Japonisme and its enduring influence in the art world today. It also examines the transactional influence of European art on Hokusai and his contemporaries, in light of the fascinating new discovery of six European-style paintings in Leiden, attributed to Hokusai himself.

Panellists include Matthi Forrer, Rijksmuseum Volkenkunde Leiden, Toshio Watanabe, UAL, Christine Guth, Senior Research Fellow, V&A, and Tim Clark, British Museum.
