 BOOK REVIEW OF WINTER 2001
This influence peaked in the 1920s with Art Deco, but is in many ways so pervasive and deeply ingrained within Western fine and decorative art traditions that one simply no longer "sees" common themes, motifs, and techniques as being Japanese.
It is arguable that "modernism" in Western art would not have occurred, certainly not in the same way, without the influence of Japanese art.
The book is in many respects a study of Art Nouveau, a major interest of Wichmann's, and he often refers to the Japanese-inspired aspects of Art Nouveau.

 Victorian Art Criticism: Battling for the Minds of the Audience
and genre versus heroic art over and over, because their conceptions of painting were so closely related to their political beliefs, and, more important, to their political fears, particularly to their fear of democratic revolutions.
Such political elements in Victorian art politics do much to explain why Ruskin and the Pre-Raphaelites were attacked with such vigor: they threatened not only vested interests in the art world but also Order itself.
With somewhat more justice the 1858 issue of this magazine commented of Frith's Derby Day, which it admitted was "the picture of the season," that "the tone of the subject is essentially" vulgar and no supremacy of execution can redeem it" (20 [1858]: 161).

 Japonisme   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Japan's impact on Western art was as immediate and almost as cataclysmic as the influence of the West on Japanese life.
After Commodore Perry opened Japan's door to the outside world in 1858—ending a 200-year period of total isolation—a wealth of visual information from the superb Japanese traditions of ceramics, metalwork, and architecture, as well as print-making and painting, reached the West and brought electrifying new ideas on composition, color, and design.
Nor is the influence a superficial one: Japanese conventions of symbolism underlie the use of decorative motifs in European Symbolism and Art Nouveau, and the Zen idea of spontaneity is the ultimate source of both the apparently capricious shapes of Art Nouveau ware and the development of an abstract "calligraphy" in Abstract Expressionism.
