About the context

Japan opened to the the world in 1868, Japanese artists had a really strong influence on European artists. This passion for Japan started with Parisian collectors and experts who appreciated the quality and elegance of these art objects. Japonism, growing since the second half of the 1870's , climaxed at the Paris 1878 World Fair where Japan was exceptionally well represented. European art critics, especially French ones, considered Japan like an uncharted paradise and its this approach that they gave to the public.
