Japanese Connections: The Birth of Modern Décor

The dialogue between Japan and France at Louvre Abu Dhabi

"Japanese Connections: The Birth of Modern Decor" is a book designed in three languages (French, English and Arabic) to accompany the Louvre Abu Dhabi’s 2018 exhibition which showcases 50 paintings, prints and folding screens that explore the artistic and cultural dialogue between Japan and France.

Co-published in September 2018 by Kaph books, Louvre Abu Dhabi and Musée d’Orsay, the choice of typographic styles, the combinations of papers and the subtlety of the cover elements pay tribute to the Japanese influences of the Nabis, a group of Post-Impressionist avant-garde artists who set the pace for fine arts and graphic arts in France in the 1890s.
