Review of “Quand les impressionnistes découvrent le Japon” (2017)

Moving picture, 53 minutes

Seen in 2020.

Seen with Swedish-language narration on SVT.

The influence of Japanese art among later-to-be-famous French painters following the Meiji restoration.

Shallow and crudely fashioned, without any Japanese perspective and with inadequate attention to the role of photography, but not quite wrong.
