Friday Night Sound Bites: The French Vogue for All Things Japanese

Friday, August 9 | 6 pm
Free. No reservations necessary. Meet at West Building Information Desk.

Enthralled by the beauty of Japanese art and design, 19th-century artists in France indulged in japonaiserie in both style (flattened planes and patterns) and subject (silk kimonos, fans, and intricate floral designs).

Join a Museum docent to look at 1 or 2 works on loan from the Chrysler Museum. Explore the conversations and connections between these visitors and the NCMA’s own works in the European galleries.
