EXHIBITION

Silver Wind:

The Arts of Sakai Hōitsu [masked])

Saturday, September 29, 2012 — Sunday, January 6, 2013

Japan Society Gallery presents the first American retrospective of Sakai Hōitsu, master of the bravura gesture, a samurai aristocrat turned Buddhist monk who dedicated his life to art and poetry. Triumphs of compositional daring and sumptuousness, Hōitsu’s paintings and those of his chief pupil Suzuki Kiitsu (1796–1858) made a defining Japanese contribution to world art.

The exhibition includes 58 screens, scrolls, painted fans, lacquer wares, and woodblock-printed books from public and private collections throughout the United States, including five loans from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

For Six Weeks Only, A Once-in-a-Lifetime Reunion of Two Celebrated Painted Screens!

Silver Wind: The Arts of Sakai Hoitsu (1761–1828) is curated by Matthew McKelway, Takeo and Itsuko Atsumi Associate Professor of Japanese Art at Columbia University.
