japonisme: art history

art history


Dasha Shishkin You’re My Horse, I’m Your Cowboy
2006 Grimm / Rosenfeld


"Shishkin’s work is a riot of styles and artists: Bacon,
Brueghel, Bonnard, Lautrec and Henry Darger meet Japonisme,
the decorative painter Ludwig Bemelmans and various demented
children’s-book illustrators."


Jerry Saltz


Sept. 16-Oct. 28, 2006, at Grimm / Rosenfeld,
530 West 25th Street, New York, N.Y. 10001

Hi,
You have made an excellent blog. How are you able to come up with some of these art comparisons, such as the Western woman and then the Japanese woman weeping a few posts back? They're amazing. I am really able to see the parallels. May I cite your page for a school report? If so, what could I call you? Just Lotusgreen? Thank you for all of the information and keep up the good work. =)

lauren--thank you! i would be quite flattered if you cited the page. and lotusgreen is fine!

i have been studying this stuff for something like 40 years. i have an entire bookshelf of books on it and spend hours online following links of extreme curiosity until i trip across something utterly surprising and exciting.

anyway, thanks for the question; i find out what i think sometimes by answering questions
