In connection with the exhibition Kuniyoshi, this exhibition presents in the course of the permanent collections forty ceramics and prints showing the influence of Japan on tableware in the second half of the nineteenth century.

Besides some rare pieces from the reserves of the museum, this exhibition-folder has large loans from a private collection.

From 1853, the gradual opening of Japan to international trade involves the influx in Europe many objects: screens, fans, lacquer, porcelain, prints ... that fascinates Western art and amateur artists.

The first example of Japonisme - to use the neologism created by the art critic Philippe Burty - was displayed during the World Exposition in 1867. Ceramics decorated with engraved patterns by Bracquemond and tableware by the Limoges factory are presented next to creations of pottery in Bordeaux.
