Monet, Gauguin, Van Gogh … Japanese Inspirations

Published to accompany Monet, Gauguin, Van Gogh… Japanese Inspirations, Museum Folkwang Essen's recent exhibition of nineteenth-century Japonisme, Belinda Thomson begins her essay, "In 1899, the French artist Félix Régamey, on an official visit to Tokyo's Fine Arts School, was pressed for information about the French Impressionists. He had a striking reply for his Japanese hosts: 'There is no question that Japanese print-making has opened up many people's eyes. You should not get so excited about our impressionism, you were the ones who invented it." Featured image is Utagawa Hiroshige's "Plum Estate, Kameido" (1857).
