Influences from Japan in Danish Art and Design 1870-2010
|Publisher||The Danish Architectural Press|
At the end of the 19th century, Danish artists were among the first in the Western world to engage with, and adopt Japanese art, into their work. By the 20th century, ‘Japonisme’ had become a significant and essential element in Danish Modernism. This book documents, in great detail, the development of Japanese influences in Danish art, design, and architecture from 1870–2010, showcasing 450 illustrations and photos of artworks and objects from Designmuseum Danmark’s major collections. Mirjam Gelfer-Jørgensen is one of Denmark’s leading researchers in applied art and design, and one of the founders of Nordic Forum for Design History.
