Summary:
The arts of Japan have long appealed to the Western love of the beautiful, but it is only during the last thirty years or so that a more general appreciation has spread from the cultured artist, such as Whistler, to the wider public. Fortunately for us, fine feeling in decoration does not need a scientific understanding to make it welcome.--pg. 9.
