Chinoiserie

A French word, also used by English speakers, to describe and aspect of Chinese influence on the arts and crafts of Europe, whether produced by European, Chinese, or artist of other origins. Particularly popular during the “Rococo” period, examples reflected fanciful and poetic notions of China, characterized by asymmetry, contrast of scale, and an attempt to imitate Chinese porcelain and laquerwork. Interest faded as Neoclassicism increased, though the style experienced a revival in the early 19th century.
