japonism in beardsleys artwork

...some impressive examples by aubrey concerning the tendency of the 90s and 00s artists (symbolists ,,but also late impressionists and nabis) to "qutoe" japanese ukiyo-e blockprints in their œuvres.
(japanese prints were first imported to europe through one of the london world exhibitions (world fairs), in circa the middle of the century) -
french society was also familiar with émile zola´s asia and orient researches who published some articles about japanese culture and art at that time.
. . . beardley-ean decadent themes in japonist style;
