Course Description: This course studies the reception of Japanese art in Europe from works of art and texts by van Gogh, Edmond de Goncourt, Oscar Wilde, and others. By widening the definition of Japonism to include literary texts from Pierre Loti, Gustave Flaubert, and others, the course discusses how and why the idea of Japan occupied such an important position within the fin de si├Ęcle European psyche. The course further looks at the impact this image of Japan crafted in Europe had among Japanese writers and artists, and analyzes how the ways Japan was perceived and appreciated in Europe modified the Japanese sense of identity during the Meiji and Taisho eras.
