Japonism to Modernism: Japanese influences on Western Art - a lecture presented by The Arts Society Ealing

By Suzy Wynbergen-Read

20th Apr 2022 | Local Features

Following the opening of Japan to Western trade in the 1860s, paintings, prints and artefacts from Japan came to Europe and the West, creating new styles and demand for all things 'Japanese': this continued into the 20th century and inspired artists to create daring new designs in architecture, space and design.

Our lecturer Suzanne Perrin has taught Japanese history and culture, has lectured at the V & A and founded Japan Interlink in 1995 to promote the understanding of Japan in the UK. In 2016 she published Bridges: Anglo-Japanese Cultural Pioneers 1945-2015.

This talk is at 7:30pm on Monday 25th April at St Barnabas Church Hall, Pitshanger Lane, Ealing W5 1QG.

Visitors are welcome to attend at £8 per lecture (reduced to £3 for students); payment can be made by cash on the evening or in advance by contacting: [email protected]
