Sea­sonal Land­scapes in Ja­panese Screens Freer Gallery, Wash­ing­ton, DC March 7 – Septem­ber 2016

Business Traveler (USA) - - THE SCENE -

Del­i­cate cherry trees bloom as pheas­ants take wing – just a few of the evoca­tive images in this col­lec­tion of Ja­panese fold­ing screen paint­ings. Vivid land­scapes from the six­teenth and early sev­en­teenth cen­turies com­bine ink paint­ing tech­niques from China with the vi­brant colors and gold of tra­di­tional Ja­panese paint­ing to cre­ate a new style on a grand scale. The ex­hi­bi­tion in the Smith­so­nian’s Freer Gallery runs through Septem­ber 2016.
