Early 20th century Charleston artist Alice Ravenel Huger Smith was one of many American artists to react to the western dissemination of Japanese prints. In a companion exhibition to Lasting Impressions: Japanese Prints from the Read-Simms Collection the wave of enthusiasm for the Japanese aesthetic in Charleston will be explored through the works of Smith and other artists who embraced the tenets and techniques of Japanese art.
