Erotic Japonism is the first monograph on the collecting practices of shunga (Japanese erotic prints) in Europe at the turn of the 19th century, most of all among the most renowned artists, and their use as a source of inspiration for them. The publication will take a new look at commonly held perceptions about history of art, revealing surprising dialogues among greatly talented artists such as Rodin, Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas, Beardsley, Sargent, Klimt, Utamaro, Hokusai or Kuniyoshi, as well as many others. -- Publisher.

The phenomenon of 'Cool Japan' is one of the distinctive features of global popular culture of the millennial age. A History of Popular Culture in Japan provides the first historical and analytical overview of popular culture in Japan from its origins in the 17th century to the present day, using it to explore broader themes of conflict, power, identity and meaning in Japanese history. E. Taylor Atkins shows how Japan is one of the earliest sites for the development of mass-produced, market-oriented cultural products consumed by urban middle and working classes. The best-known traditional arts and culture of Japan- no theater, monochrome ink painting, court literature, poetry and indigenous music-inhabited a world distinct from that of urban commoners, who fashioned their own expressive forms and laid the groundwork for today's 'gross national cool.' Popular culture was pivotal in the rise of Japanese nationalism, imperialism, militarism, postwar democracy and economic development. Offering historiographical and analytical frameworks for understanding its subject, A History of Popular Culture in Japan synthesizes the latest scholarship from a variety of disciplines. It is a vital resource for students of Japanese cultural history wishing to gain a deeper understanding of Japan's contributions to global cultural heritage.

From the moment of the very first contact in the sixteenth century, Japan has always possessed an irresistible fascination for the West. The fascination was if anything increased when Japan closed its borders in 1638, and for over 200 years the only contact was through a small colony of Dutch traders who were permitted to live on the tiny island of Deshima in Nagasaki Bay. After 1858, full trade was resumed, and a wave of Japanomania' swept across Europe and America.Lionel Lambourne tells this remarkable story in a fluent and engaging narrative that focuses on the human drama- often amusing but sometimes tragic - of the individual personalities involved in the two-way dialogue between cultures. After an Introduction telling the story of the first contacts, the long isolation and the events leading to the renewal of free trade in Japan, he turns to Europe and captures the excitement as artists - notably Whistler and the Impressionists - discovered Japanese prints and artefacts, and began to incorporate their influence in their own work. The story spreads far beyond fine art and follows the Japanese craze into the decorative arts, interior design, furnishings, fashion accessories and, importantly, literature and theatre. With his inimitable style and his rich store of well-chosen anecdotes, the author brings the personalities to life, and conveys a vivid impression of the enthusiasm that Japonisme generated. He also devotes chapters to travel, Japonisme in America, landscape and gardens, and the curious subject of spooks and ghosts.The visual impact of Japan on the West was enormous, and this is wonderfully conveyed in the rich and varied selection of illustrations - some 250 in all - which include many original Japanese prints and artefacts juxtaposed with the works that they directly inspired, as well as the whole range of the decorative arts, posters, advertisements, book illustrations, fashion, cartoons, photography, gardens and architecture.With its lively text full of human interest and closely supported by a wealth of beautiful illustrations, Japonisme will provide the perfect introduction to this popular subject for the widest possible audience, and will also be a valuable reference source for teachers and students.

Pierre Bonnard war der führende Kopf einer Gruppe postimpressionistischer Künstler, die sich selbst ""die Nabis"" nannten, ausgehend vom hebräischen Wort für ""Prophet"". Unter dem Einfluss von Odilon Redon, Puvis de Chavannes, zeitgenössischer Symbolik und japanischer Holzdruckkunst revolutionisierten Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton und Denis, um nur die bekanntesten zu nennen, den Geist des Kunsthandwerks zu einer Zeit des Höhepunkts der französischen Malerei. Auch wenn die zunehmende Individualisierung ihrer Werke die Einheit der Gruppe bedrohte, waren die Nabis doch in erster Linie eine Gemeinschaft enger Freunde. Die in diesem Buch präsentierten Kunstwerke reichen von Bonnards Arglosigkeit, Vuillards dekorative und mysteriösen Bildern, bis hin zu Denis' weichem Schmachten und Vallottons beinahe bitterer Grobheit - sie alle lassen uns eintauchen in eine Fülle künstlerischer Brillanz.
