The Arts of Japan and Europe: Fascinating Parallels and Contrasts throughout History

Thursday 22 June (Booking Thursday 20 April)
Marie-Therese Barrett MA

This survey of Japanese art throughout history, from pre-history to the 19th century, reveals surprising similarities and fascinating contrasts with Western art of the same period.  Japanese approaches to painting, society, environment and materials will be explored in comparison with those in Europe.  This provides an eye-opener on artistic responses in different cultures.

Marie-Therese Barrett also invites members to bring along family treasures for discussion and provides a cup of Japanese green tea.
