Japonism is word used to describe the study of Japanese art and, more specifically, its influence on European works. The Fox and the Crane History. The fable has been illustrated since the Middle Ages in Europe, and goes like this.A FOX invited a Crane to supper and provided nothing for his. Entertainment but some soup made of pulse, which was poured out. Into a broad flat stone dish.
The soup fell out of the long bill. Of the Crane at every mouthful, and his vexation at not being. Able to eat afforded the Fox much amusement.Turn, asked the Fox to sup with him, and set before her a flagon. With a long narrow mouth, so that he could easily insert his neck. And enjoy its contents at his leisure. The Fox, unable even to. Taste it, met with a fitting requital, after the fashion of her. The lesson learned is that the trickster must expect trickery in return and that the golden rule of conduct is for one to do to others what one would wish for oneself.
