Portuguese Carrack, Japan, 17th century
Nanban art refers to Japanese art of the 16th and 17th centuries influenced by contact with the Namban or ‘Southern barbarians’, traders and missionaries from Europe, specifically Portugal.Namban art developed after the first Portuguese ships arrived in Kyushu in 1543. While Christian icons and other objects were produced, Namban byobu or folding screens are particularly notable. Artists of the Kano and Tosa schools combined foreign subject matter with Japanese styles of painting. The prohibition of Christianity from the end of the sixteenth century and the policy of sakoku that largely closed Japan to foreign contact from the 1630s saw the decline of Namban art.
