Japanese Art Series
Japanese art has deep and complex historical roots. For centuries at a time, Japanese artists were disconnected from the rest of the world as Japan explored isolationist policies. However, in the 1860s Japan opened its markets and exploded onto the global art scene. The unique, unusual, and unexpected Japanese arts influenced the future impressionist movement in Europe and America 0n the 1870s.

We will take you on a journey through manga, traditional painting ukiyo-e, architecture, calligraphy, origami, sculpture, fans, yukata and kimono, samurai masks, ikebana, kyudo and contemporary art, to name a few!
