DESCRIPTION

See the profound influence of Japanese art on artists working in nineteenth-century Paris. Like a breeze carrying an alluring, totally new scent, the arrival of Japanese woodblock prints, screens, scrolls, and decorative objects awed and inspired artists such as Bonnard, Cassatt, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Whistler.
