I especially liked how Dr Campbell brought out how artists like Whistler and the Impressionists were made to see the world - and so to present it - through Japanese eyes as a result of their passionate study of Japanese prints. Really, really interesting.

Dr. Gavin gave another spectacular presentation on the early impact of the Japanese culture on a global level.
This course describes expertly how Whistler was influenced by Japanese art and themes bringing a poetic quality to his work.
Dr. Campbell gives a well researched and delightful talk on the subject of Whistler and Japan. I learned a lot and after attending the seminar I am now intrigued to do more reading on the subject.
