Julian Alden Weir, American Impressionism, and Japonisme
In "Early Collectors of Japanese Prints and the Metropolitan Museum of Art," Julia Meech-Pekarik describes the influence of Japanese prints on American artists in the 1800s. Starting on page 104, the author describes Weir's fascination with this newly discovered art form in-depth.
In a time of relative nativism and cross-cultural ignorance, Weir and his fellow American Impressionists saw artistic beauty in cultural cooperation and diversity.
