Japanism to Modernism: Japanese Influences on Western Art, By Suzanne Perrin


June 5, 2024


La Senieta (11am) and Casa de Cultura, Javea (7:30pm)


Following the opening of Japan to western trade in the 1860s, paintings, prints and artifacts from Japan came to Europe and the West, creating new styles and demand for all things ‘Japanese’: this continued into the 20th century and inspired artists to create daring new designs in architecture, space and design.


Suzanne is an independent researcher and historian specialising in Japanese History, Art & Culture, and founded Japan Interlink in 1995 to promote the understanding of Japan in the UK. Suzanne studied Nihonga traditional Japanese painting at Nagoya University of Arts and reached Level 3 in Japanese Language. Suzanne has lectured to a wide range of institutions including universities, museums and adult education groups in the UK and overseas. She taught Japanese History & Culture at Richmond American International University in London for over ten years, lectures for the Arts of Asia course at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, for the British Museum and London Institute Universities, the University of Cape Town, and University of Brighton Art & Design School.
