japonisme: from whence commeth....

from whence commeth....

skipping over margaret armstrong and her bindings for the moment, i wish to take a moment to thank pk for his pointer, and put the question to y'all: goes around comes around? sun/nothing new? inspiration? theft? or merely coincidental???

as i am trying to do always now, i have put the artist's name in the image name. (but you can still guess.)

have these contem- porary artists been enam- oured with those french artists who adored their grandparents' work, or are my eyes playing tricks?

and of course, now we know where the french got it. except in this last case of course where the french is also the japanese!

MA later....
