This original French artwork is a beautiful example of Japonism & the art nouveau movement. The French term `Japonism', coined by Philippe Burty, embodies the influence that Japanese art had on the arts in France from the 1860s onwards.

For many European artists, this was a period of soul searching and aesthetic renewal, looking upon the natural world with fresh eyes to appreciate the sinuous, organic forms, sensual textures and patterns it expressed.

 “Japanese art is as important as a teacher. From it, we once again learn to feel clearly how far we have strayed from nature's true designs through the persistent imitation of fixed models; we learn how necessary it is to draw from the source; how the human spirit is able to absorb a wealth of magnificent, naive beauty from the organic forms of nature in place of pedantic, decrepit rigidity of form.” -  Julius Lessing, Report from the Paris Exposition Universelle, 1878

This original block has been lovingly restored and digitally reproduced using ethically sourced materials. 

A limited-edition, 50 prints available.
