Was not expecting the Victorian-era racism regarding the Japanese flowers. A simple Google search on the part of the authors would have illuminated the problems with using La Japonaise au Bain, a particularly Orientalist piece of art, with no discussion of the problems of Japonisme's sexualization of Japanese women and use of European models. The words "exotic" and "since time immemorial" are lazy writing.
