Plenty of books on this subject, but clearly Japanese prints influenced use of color (flat, non-naturalistic areas of color), design (asymmetrical, view from unusual persepctive points, high vanishing points) and subject matter (so-called Japonism). Van Gough had a collection of Japanese prints, and made a few study paintings after them. Monet, Whistler, Lautrec and many others were deeply influenced. Western art was moved, shaken, rerouted--though astute critics like Hillier suggest this change was on the way already and Japanese prints were just an impetus.
