How the West Was Won: Marketing Japan in North America, 1855–1915

Boardroom
Thursday, 1:00 p.m.

The opening of Japan in the 1850s to trade with Western nations inspired “Japonism,” the widespread public enthusiasm in North America and Europe for “artistic” Japanese and Japanese-style consumer goods affordable by all economic classes. This illustrated talk by Will Chandler, former Curator of Decorative Arts at the Museum, surveys the ways in which Japanese exporters invented new kinds of artistic products to help pay for modernization, and how American merchants presented Japanese culture and goods to attract buyers.
