After 200 years of seclusion and isolation, Japanese goods could be exported again in the 1860s. And it became a real hype in Paris where artists loved the inspiration it provided. The Japanese Parisian (1872) by Alfred Stevens was one of the many artworks inspired by this craze. Many artists that are well-known today would be inspired by the Japanese style, compositions, patterns, and colors, including Gauguin, Manet, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Stevens, Tissot, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh and Whistler. Alfred Stevens (1823-1906) was a Belgian painter who spent most of his life in Paris. His specialty was painting elegant and modern women, of whom there were plenty to find in Paris. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #Stevens #AlfredStevens #BelgianPainter #BelgianArtist #Belgian #Paris #Japonisme #Japonism #Japan #Japanese #Kimono #Colorful #Mirror #Flowers #Portrait
