Japornism

East meets West meets East meets West

JAPORNISM. Erotic Contemporientalism, re-interpreting traditional Japanese Ukiyo-e Shunga. Ukiyo-e is a genre of Japanese art which flourished between the 17th and 19th centuries, whilst Shunga is Japanese for ‘Erotic Art’. Ukiyo-e was central to forming the West’s perception of Japanese art in the late 19th century–especially the landscapes of Hokusai and Hiroshige. From the 1870s Japonism became a prominent trend and had a strong influence on the early Impressionists such as Degas, Manet, and Monet, as well as Post-Impressionists such as van Gogh and Art Nouveau artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec.
