Looking East: How Japan Inspired Monet, Van Gogh and Other Western Artists

Join us at the Valley Center for the Performing Arts at Holy Names University of Oakland to hear about an exciting exhibition at the Asian Art Museum of SF that “explores the craze for all things Japanese that changed the course of Western art.”

"When Japan opened its port to international trade in the 1850s and emerged from centuries of self-imposed isolation, Japanese prints, albums and objects arrived in Europe and North America in unprecedented quantities. In the frenzy of collecting and admiration that followed, Japanese art caught the eye of designers and artists seeking fresh solutions to artistic problems."

"Looking East" explores the many movements and artists affected by Japanese art, including the great impressionist and post-impressionist painters Vincent van Gogh, Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin and Claude Monet. Juxtaposing masterpieces of Western art and design with rare works by prominent Japanese artists, the exhibition reveals the interplay of new styles and themes inspired by Japan."

Program:
7:00pm to 8:15pm Lecture and Q&A
8:15pm to 9:00pm Reception and Networking

Pricing:
