Japonisme Comes to America: The Japanese Impact on the Graphic Arts 1876-1925
Julia Meek and Gabriel P. Weisberg (Author)
This book focuses on the Japanese influence on American works on paper - watercolors, etchings, sketches, and woodcuts (or ukiyo-e prints), of which Hokusai and Hiroshige were masters. Produced in large numbers at a low price, the ukiyo-e woodcut print was snapped up by Europeans and Americans at the end of the nineteenth century. The artistic impact in America of these prints and of Japan itself is traced in this fascinating and innovative book.
