The so-called "Rousseau" service played a pivotal role in the spread of japonisme in France in the second half of the 19th century. Conventional in its forms, it was startlingly novel in the asymmetrical disposition of the images which were largely Bracquemond's reworkings of Japanese prints by Hiroshige and Hokusai, as well as subjects of his own.
