Japanomania in the North 1875–1918: The Influence of Japan on Nordic Art and Design
OSLO • The National Gallery and The Museum of Decorative Arts and Design • 17 June - 16 October 2016
The first of its kind, this exhibition shows the wide-ranging influence of Japanese art on Nordic art and design around 1900. The exhibition consists of two parts: at the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design attention is primarily to applied art, while at the National Gallery the principal emphasis is on fine art.
Japanese art and design had a profound influence in the Nordic countries during the final decades of the 19th century and well into the 20th. After Japan opened its borders in 1854, Japanese objects soon found their way into world exhibitions and famous department stores in Paris and London. It was in these metropolises, around 1860, that this East-Asian culture first had an impact. Internationally, the movement became known as Japonism, or the Anglo-Japanese style.
