While researching my own question How important was the invention of blue towards anime?, I landed relatively quickly on Hokusai, which was one of the key instigators of Japonisme.
Japonisme, is the study of Japanese art and artistic talent. Japonisme affected fine arts, sculpture, architecture, performing arts and decorative arts throughout Western culture
Although Japonisme mainly influenced the European art, it also had an effect on the Japanese art scene.
So did Japonisme also lead to, or influence the creation of manga/anime as we know it nowadays?
