Following Winckelmann, Riegl, Wolfflin, Dvorak and Focillon established the concept of change of style in Western Art. Each of terms Archaism, Classicism, Mannerism and Baroque explains a development of the style of art, which can be adapted and applied to the Greek period (from 6th century to 12nd century), to Romanesque and Gothic period (11th c. to 15th c.) and to the Italian period (14th c. to 14th c.). It is possible to say that the appreciation of the style in a criterium of the history of art, which is independent of political history. Does there exist a development of Style in Japanese Art History? Art historians in Japan survey art with the names of political periods but my recent research of style makes notice the artistic styles from the 7th century to the 14th century in his Buddhist art. In the 7th century, or Asuka period the statues of Kudara and of Guze (Nara, Horyu-ji Temple) show Archaisme in their styles and smiles. In the 8th century with the sculptures of Todai-ji and Kofuku-ji, and the paintings of the main building or of the Kondo, Horyu-ji Temple remark the style of Classicism, which is based on the senses of serenity, stability and humanity. And in the 9th century a tendency toward Mannerism appears, which is seen in the statues of the Toji Temple, Kyoto, or sculptures of the Jocho-style, and in the paintings of Esoterc Buddhism. Stylisation, exaggeration and intellectualism are observed as style. And in the middle of the 12th century we find a new style with the rise of the Samurai class : Baroque art, which expressed the characters of realism, movement and strength. From the 15th century, as with modern art in Europe, subjects of art are diversified, with the appearance of Yamato-e and Sansui-zu in the Muromachi period, and with the decorative Kano-style, the Korin-style, the "impressionist" Bunjinga-style, and the Ukiyo-e in the Edo period (from the 17th to the 19th centuries).
