The Exposition Universelle was also a celebration of the Art Nouveau movement where Japanese art played a central role. Since the 1870s, Japanese furniture, paintings, lacquerware, metalwork, and some woodblock prints with Japanese landscapes had become widely known in Europe. Eventually, woodblock prints of no great cultural standing in Japan that were depicting theater actors, famous geisha with their bold graphic design and colors became the rage among European artists ranging from van Gogh to Manet and Klimt. They also were the inspiration for floral patterns in the performances held at the theater of “la Loïe.” Modernity celebrated its global claim through interaction with other cultures. With its signature dynamic style dominating buildings, art work, posters and performances. The fair also turned the streets of Paris into free art galleries where masterpieces by Toulouse-Lautrec, Steinlein, or Bonnard could be seen, many of them devoted to capture the spirit of Loïe Fuller’s dance.
