Summary "Hinges: Sakaki Hyakusen and the Birth of Nanga Painting is the first US exhibition focusing on the art of Sakaki Hyakusen (1697-1752), the founding father of Nanga school painting in Japan. The exhibition, together with a fully illustrated catalog and extensive public programs, will demonstrate Hyakusen's pivotal role as a key figure in the transformation of Japanese painting of the eighteenth century. Highlighting the recent conservation of Landscape, a pair of six-fold screens by Hyakusen, alongside Chinese landscape paintings by traditional masters and works by Nanga school painters, the exhibition promises to add significantly to public understanding of the art of conservation and important crosscultural and artistic connections between Japan and China. With a foreword and introductory essay by curator Julia White, the fully illustrated catalog will include approximately fifty images, and three additional essays. A special chapter on conservation techniques and best practices in East Asian painting adds essential information on a contemporary area of interest. Published in association with the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA)"--Provided by publisher.
