In our current gallery presentation, Influencers: Japonisme and Modern Japan, an exploration of the influence of Japanese art on Western art and the development of modern international art modes such as art nouveau and art deco.

In March of last year, the Asia Week exhibition at Scholten Japanese Art examined the impact of the West on Japanese art and culture during the Meiji Period (1868–1912). This March, Scholten turns their attention in the opposite direction to consider the influence of Japanese art on the West, popularly known as Japonisme, contemplating the subsequent effect of influences that travelled in both directions and resulted in the blending of art modes into an international style. This is our largest exhibition to date, including 102 works with representation by important French, Austrian, German, British, American and Japanese artists, and will include paintings and prints with an emphasis on the development of Japanese style color woodblock printing in the West.


Scholten Japanese Art is open Monday - Friday, and some Saturdays by appointment only
