_________________________________________________________________________ The speaker will be Marie-Therese Barrett who will be discussing the fascinating topic of the cross-cultural encounters between Japan and the West, from the mid-16th century onwards, and artistic achievements in that period. Initially Europe influenced Japan but by 19th century, the situation had reversed and Japanese art had a revolutionary impact on the West, known as ‘Japonisme’, which Marie-Therese’s talk will examine, showing the astonishing results.
