ARTH 2275 Arts of Japan (Spring: 3 )
Although Japanese art was influenced by Chinese art, it had a distinct character of its own and maintained its originality from the beginning. The Japanese found pleasure in relating art to man and his activities, and a large element of humor is present in their works. Decorative design is probably their greatest genius, and is not matched by any other culture in the Far East. This is best illustrated by all articles of daily use where they placed great value on the visual impact of the object at hand.
