Art Deco in Japan

I just returned from vacation on the North Coast of Oregon.
First stopping in Seattle where I saw the “Art Deco in Japan” exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum in Volunteer Park, an Olmstead creation.
The Kani Earthquake in 1920 opened up the opportunity for rebuilding in Tokyo and exposing them to Global Influences, especially with the finding of King Tut’s Tomb.
It may be said that disasters influence the creation of artistic expression through rebuilding.
