Celebrating an era of dynamic and creative cross-pollination between Japanese design and European Art Nouveau at theturn of the last century, Le Japon Artistique features stunning floral imagery drawn from a variety of rare books held in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Seldom seen outside the museum context, these lush botanical motifs are as visually enchanting as they are significant in the arc of Japanese art history. This treat for art and design lovers is the perfect pick for springtime gift giving.
