BC. Laurence Binyon

10. ‘Ideas of Design in East and West’. Atlantic Monthly, November 1913, pp. 643-54.

Binyon’s argument about the ‘error’ of the view that art ‘has come into existence as a result of the imitative instinct in mankind’ draws its sustenance from Chinese and Japanese traditions of design. Includes discussion of and disagreement with Whistler’s response to Japanese art (about which see also 5).
