Following the opening up of Japan to the West in the Protected content , artists, designers and makers across Europe became gripped by a new fashion for ‘Japonisme’. The exhibition focuses on a pioneering group of Parisian artists who had deep admiration for Emile Bernard and Paul Gauguin’s innovative art.

On display are beautiful landscapes by the great Japanese masters Utagawa Hiroshige and Katsushika Hokusai side by side with dream-like paintings and interior decors by the likes of Pierre Bonnard, Odilaon Redon, and Edouard Vuillard.
