Japonism 2018 – Souls in Harmony

Japonism 2018 – Souls in Harmony

The decorative arts, fine arts, fashion, literature, music … Japanese influence on French and other western artists in the 19th century was enormous and cinema was no exception. The Hidden Fortress partly inspired the Star Wars trilogy; The Magnificent Seven was modelled after Seven Samurai; The Life of Oharu gave rise to Jacques Rivette’s The Nun and Rashomon to Last Year at Marienbad.

As part of the cultural event “Japonisme 2018: Souls in Harmony”, Vesoul invites you to discover or rediscover our selection of Japanese masterpieces that have left an indelible mark not only on French but nearly all of western cinema. Laquerware and prints were the first Japanese art works to stir French interest in the 17th century, but it was mostly the Treaty of Amity and Commerce between France and Japan of 1858 that encouraged the influence of Japanese civilisation on the western arts, influence defined as “Japonism” in 1876. Japanese woodblock prints had a major impact on the work of Impressionists such as Manet, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec and Van Gogh, just as Japanese literature inspired Baudelaire, Mallarmé and Hugo.
