Silver Wind: The Arts of Sakai Hoitsu at Japan Society: NYC-ARTS | Exhibition

Japan Society Gallery presents the first American retrospective of Sakai Hoitsu, 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, Hoitsu's paintings and those of his chief pupil Suzuki Kiitsu (1796--1858) made a defining Japanese contribution to world art.
