This exhibition will illustrate the rich cross-cultural influences between Japan and European and American artists from the late 17th to late 19th century. "When East Meets West" will include numerous examples of late 17th and early 18th century Japanese porcelain from the John Lesh Jacobs Collection drawn from the permanent collections of OUMA and the High Museum. These works will be juxtaposed against exquisite examples of 18th century Meissen porcelain from the Warda Stout Collection borrowed from the Dixon Gallery and Gardens. The second half of the exhibition will contain 19th century works on paper by Japanese artists to include Hokusai, Utamaro and Hiroshege as well as Impressionist masterpieces by Pissarro, Boudin, C├ęzanne, Cassatt, Homer and Reid from the permanent collections of OUMA and institutional and private collections.
