> DESCRIPTION

During the late 19th century Japan had just opened to Western trade and travel, and new steam powered ships, as well as the completion of the Suez Canal in 1869, made the ocean voyage safer and faster. At this time a few adventurous women artists from the West traveled to Japan, individually and often unescorted, to learn of the art and culture.
