Hinges: Sakaki Hyakusen and the Birth of Nanga Painting

When: Through Feb. 2, 2020

The first US exhibition to focus on the art of Sakaki Hyakusen (1697–1752), the founding father of the Nanga school of painting in Japan. A pivotal figure in the history of Japanese art, Hyakusen served as a hinge between two artistic traditions: working from close observation of Chinese painting, he played a key role in the transformation of painting in eighteenth-century Japan.
