How to Prepare for this Assignment

View the video: “Converging Cultures” (26 minutes):

Read: pages 216-221
Answer ALL of the Following Questions
1. Many western artists, both in Europe and America, were influenced by the influx of Japanese design and
ukiyo-e prints from the 18th and 19th centuries. Some of these artists include: Claude Monet, Mary
Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Vincent van Gogh, and James McNeil
a. Consider this phenomenon and choose a work not mentioned in the book or video where these
influences can be seen and discuss. Be sure to identify the artwork fully (artist name, title, date,
medium) and provide a hyperlink or jpg image within your essay.
b. What makes the work you chose a form of Japonisme (a term used to describe the way in which
the work of Japanese artists influenced many artists in Europe)?
c. What is the historical context of the work you chose? When and why was it created? (For this
you will have to do some outside research.)
2. Pick an artwork from the video “Converging Cultures” and discuss. How is this work a form of
hybrid art? Where do you see the different cultural elements and how did the artist incorporate them?
3. Today, artists around the world are increasingly exposed to global culture through the media,
technology, tourism, and foreign trade. Explain your thoughts on this cultural exchange and its impact
on art and expression. How does art from one culture change or inspire the art of another? Use a
contemporary artwork example (art created in approximately the last thirty years) from the video or
from your textbook to help illustrate your answers. (Note: do not select the same work you discussed in
question #2 above).
