After Japan finally opened its ports to international trade in the 1850s, there were many imported Japanese artworks to Europe and North America.

Art Nouveau: Influence on Nature, Colour, and Sex One of the most important figures that was responsible for the popularity of Japonisme and the international stylistic movement of Art Nouveau was Siegfried Bing, a German art dealer based in Paris who brought in Japanese prints, ceramics, lacquer and other applied arts to the West.
Anime and Manga are extremely unique forms of artistic expression which arose from years of cultural collaboration and blending between eastern and western cultures.
