Challenging clichés of Japanism as a female style, Bachelor Japanists argues that eastern aesthetics have been imperative to contests over the meanings of masculinity within the West. Christopher Reed attracts awareness to the queerness of Japanist groups of writers, creditors, curators, and artists within the tumultuous century among the 1860s and the 1960s.

Reed combines wide archival examine; research of artwork, structure, and literature; the insights of queer thought; and an appreciation of irony to discover the East-West come upon via 3 revealing creative milieus: the Goncourt brothers and other japonistes of late-nineteenth-century Paris; creditors and curators in turn-of-the-century Boston; and the mid-twentieth-century circles of artists linked to Seattle’s Mark Tobey. the result's a groundbreaking integration of famous and forgotten episodes and personalities that illuminates how jap aesthetics have been used to problem Western gender conventions. those disruptive results are sustained in Reed’s research, which undermines traditional scholarly investments within the heroism of avant-garde accomplishment and beliefs of cultural authenticity.
