Degas and Japonisme

There is a lovely blog on Japonisme, which arises from French artists’ inspiration when they first came in contact with Japanese art starting in the mid 1850s, when the Meiji artsts ended their isolation. I saw some gorgeous comparisons between Degas and Japanese artist Utamaro Kitagawa, so I thought I’d share.
