The Japanese Garden in the West – 100 Years of Eastern Influence – Talk by Amanda Herries
October 18 @ 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Wednesday, October 18th 2023, 7.00 PM – 8.00 PM
The serenity, asymmetry and control of a Japanese garden is in seductive contrast to Western symmetry, form and free growth. The West originally discovered Japanese trees, plants, flowers and designs through illustrations on imported porcelain, lacquer and screens.
Japanese garden styles became highly fashionable in the 20th century, with several still identifiable.
After 10 years as Curator at Museum of London specialising in the decorative arts, Amanda moved with her family to Japan in 1988. Since her return, she has lectured, written and guided tours on Japan.
