We might think of Asian art in America as woodblock prints and decor items from the late 1800s on, but European outposts from Canada to Peru were at the center of trade with Asia hundreds of years earlier, and their arts and crafts heavily influenced those of the New World. The exquisite objects in this catalog from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston span the 17th and 19th centuries: folding screens in Mexico imitating Japanese and Chinese screens, blue and white talavera ceramics echoing fine china, luxurious textiles inspired by silks and cottons from China and India, "japanned" furniture from Boston with Asian lacquer finishes, and even devotional statues adapting Buddhist gods into Christian saints.
