Course Description

IN PERSON: Here's a disturbing perspective that some Western art aficionados may not want to consider: Without "the wind from the east" — the creative energy from Japan that swept into the West in the 19th century — we might not have had the great works of Monet, Degas, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Whistler, Toulouse-Lautrec and others. In sum, we would have missed out on the groundbreaking masterpieces that ushered in so-called “modern art" in the West. Could these Japanese-inspired elements have profoundly and irrevocably revolutionized Western art? Or were the similarities merely coincidental? This lecture-based course will examine the connections between the themes, techniques and aesthetics of Japanese art and their influence on the West. It’s a complex and fascinating part of art history. Let’s explore this together. | Lecture + Q&A.

Max enrollment: 25.
