Exhibition The Norwegian Japonism at the Jugendstilsenteret in Ålesund - from 26 September 2014 to 7 April 2015


The movement that is now spreading from Japan across Europe”

This quote from the Norwegian artist Gerhard Munthe (1849–1929) refers to one of the main trends in European art from the mid-19th century through the early decades of the 20th century.

In 1853, Japan opened its borders to the outside world after 200 years of isolation. This lead to a cult of all things Japanese among European artists – a movement labelled as Japonism from the 1860s–70s onward. This Japanese-inspired art did not constitute a style as such, but greatly influenced a number of styles in European art. In the 1880s and 1890s, Japonism became a major ingredient of the Art Nouveau style. In Norway, Art Nouveau peaked in popularity in the years between 1890 and 1910.

This exhibition looks at the connections between the Art Nouveau style, the nation-building project in Norway, and the Japonism movement as expressed in Norwegian Art Nouveau. Starting with Gerhard Munthe, considered the leading proponent of Japonism in Norway, the exhibition highlights connections between Japonism and the distinct national character of Norwegian Art Nouveau in terms of technique, range of motifs, format, and choice of materials.

The assassination of the Austrian heir to the throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, on the 28th of June 1914 in Sarajevo was the fatal trigger of World War I.

Selected works by contemporary artists from Italy, Romania, Russia and Serbia – the countries that Austria-Hungary fought on the frontlines during World War I – create a connection to the present. Presented in the exhibition are 200 works, 40 of which hail from the collection of the Leopold Museum, 30 from the Leopold Collection II and 130 from public and private Austrian and international lenders. The historical objects are complemented by contemporary art interventions.
