The exhibition of Japanese prints held at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1890 is a milestone in the history of Japonisme. Organized by S. Bing in collaboration with a
number of Japonistes, the exhibition presented more than 1100 Japanese prints, illustrated books and kakemono. The article to which this supplement belongs reconstructs this historic event in its diverse aspects: clarifying the preparation process, reconstructing the exhibition venue, identifying exhibits, and examining their lenders. All these factors will be placed in a historical
context, revealing how meticulously Bing prepared the exhibition and subsequently promoted ukiyo-e prints in France. The impact of this exhibition on artists and critics,
which is clearly visible in artists’ letters and contemporary reviews published in the press, is also briefly discussed.
