Japonisme : cultural crossings between Japan and the West by Lionel Lambourne( Book )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ever since the very first contact in the sixteenth century, Japan has always possessed an irresistible fascination for the West. The allure was only increased when, in 1638, Japan closed its borders and for over 200 years communications could only be made through a small colony of Dutch traders 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 of the personalities involved. This book provides a background to the history of trade with the East, before turning to Europe to describe the excitement as artists - most notably Whistler and the impressionists - discovered the newly arrived Japanese prints and artefacts, and began to incorporate their influence into their work. The story spreads far beyond fine art, however, and follows the Japanese craze into the decorative arts, interior design, furnishings, fabrics and fashion as well as literature and the theatre."--Jacket
The Aesthetic Movement by Lionel Lambourne( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originating from the Greek, aesthetics is the name which has been given since classical times to the study of beauty and the nature of the beautiful. In the second half of the nineteenth century, fuelled by the writings of Walter Pater and Baudelaire and the art of the Pre-Raphaelites, British poets, painters, designers and architects began to turn to aesthetic concerns and to place more emphasis on ornament and on the past. The result was the Aesthetic Movement and a new freedom in all aspects of the fine and decorative arts. In architecture, the dogmatism of Gothic gave way to the charm of Queen Anne. In interiors, heavy Victorian forms were replaced by the lighter, fresher Japanese-inspired shapes and in the graphic arts, innovative methods, coupled with a new approach to form led to the revitalization of illustration and book design. Believing that beauty should permeate every sphere of life, the Aesthetes' rallying cry was 'Art For Art's Sake'. Oscar Wilde, one of the movement's most characteristic and charismatic members, was heard to complain about the difficulty of 'living up to one's blue and white china' and his flamboyant dress and lifestyle made him one of the most widely known figures of the late nineteenth century. Together with James McNeill Whistler, Aubrey Beardsley and a host of other colourful figures, Wilde felt very strongly about elegance and richness and it was this very coherence of philosophy that held the Aesthetic Movement together and gave it a lasting influence. From the languid figures of Rossetti to the sunflowers of Wilde and the flamboyance of Ellen Terry, Aesthetic motifs cannot be easily forgotten

The Wilde years : Oscar Wilde & the art of his time by Tomoko Sato( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on the last quarter of the nineteenth century, The Wilde Years features Oscar Wilde as a central, catalytic figure linking two artistic capitals, London and Paris. Wilde is presented as a multi-faceted artist, whose major achievement was language, with which he contributed to the development of artistic and cultural movements of his age. In his lifetime, Wilde was praised as a poet, writer and, in particular, playwright, but this publication throws new light on his lesser known work as an art critic, journalist and progressive thinker."--Jacket

Japonisme : échanges culturels entre le Japon et l'occident by Lionel Lambourne( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in French and English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Depuis ses premiers contacts avec le Japon au xvie siècle, l'Occident n'a cessé d'être fasciné par la culture de ce pays lointain et secret. Lorsqu'en 1638 le Japon ferme ses frontières, il ne permet seulement à une petite colonie de commerçants néerlandais de vivre sur la petite île de Deshima dans la baie de Nagasaki. En 1858, le commerce reprend et les emprunts aux arts et à l'histoire du Japon diffusent alors largement à travers l'Europe et l'Amérique. Japonisme propose une étude complète et richement illustrée de ce mouvement. L'ouvrage analyse ainsi les champs des beaux-arts et arts décoratifs, mais aussi ceux de la décoration intérieure, des costumes, des accessoires de mode, de la littérature, du théâtre, des voyages, des jardins et des plantes
