BC. Laurence Binyon

8. ‘Japanese Masterpieces in London’. Saturday Review (London) 109 (May 1910): 686-87.

Binyon’s enthusiastic review of an exhibition at Shepherd’s Bush emphasises that unlike ‘our way’ in Europe the Japanese works ‘defy nature’ and ‘shatter the world of appearances’. Artists ‘will not be slow to appreciate’ the work, he concludes, ‘and it may be that the art of the Far East will now affect our art in other and less obvious ways than the designing of picture posters’.
