The 1876 Centennial International Exhibition in Philadelphia provided many Americans with their first direct exposure to Asian art through an array of objects showcased in the Japanese Bazaar. The resulting enthusiasm for Japanese arts was reflected in American decorative arts, furniture, and even print material. Anglo-Japanese furniture was typically painted with a shiny black lacquer to mimic Japanese lacquer. Furniture often had straight lines balanced by solids and voids.
