Japanese Influences in European Art

Japan has influenced Europe in many ways. Long before Shibas came to Europe, Japanese art made a huge impact in Europe. This was just after the Meiji restoration, in the late 19th century, when Japan was opened up to the rest of the world after two and a half centuries of isolation. It is interesting to read about this. I cannot believe this was as significant as when the first Shibas came around in the 1970's, but it was important, nevertheless. Japan has a fascinating culture, where there is still much to learn for Europeans. I will help in anyway I can.
