Ukio-e Influence on Mary Cassatt & Berthe Morisot

Art: Iran
By: Razieh Razi-zadeh, Iran
Fundamental changes occurred in European society in the second half of the nineteenth century. These developments pick up a faster pace with the arrival in Europe or oriental products, especially Japanese art.

Ukio-e prints were among Japanese art objects that aroused the interest o European, especially French artists, thereby effecting some fundamental changes in European painting.

Many artists at the time applied ideas derived from these prints.

Among these artists were Millet, Manet, Monet, Degas, Toulouse-Lautree, Van Gogh, Gaugin and Whistler.

Two women artists, Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot, were also influenced by this trend. In particular, these two artists adopted the principles of composition, lack of spatial perspective, flat bright colors, and even subject matter, from these prints in their own works.
