Following the opening up of Japan to the West in the 1850s, artists, designers and makers across Europe became gripped by a new fashion for “Japonism”. The catalogue of the Louvre Abu-Dhabi exhibition focuses on the pioneering group of Parisian artists Les Nabis, their fascination for Japanese prints, and the importance of this cross-cultural influence in the development of the decorative arts.
