A Giant Leap: The Transformation of Hasegawa Tohaku



Tōhaku's paintings were produced in ink, color, ground pigments, and often gold applied in thin layers on a paper or silk support. These materials are extremely fragile and susceptible to light and cannot be displayed for more than 26 days at a time according to regulations set by the Agency of Cultural Affairs in Japan.

View a curated selection of these rare, delicate screens at Japan Society through May 6, 2018.



In Memoriam

Peter G. Peterson
1926—2018


Japan Society mourns the passing of Peter G. Peterson, a long-time and instrumental Board member since 1982. A cornerstone figure in international relations throughout his career in the public and private sectors, Mr. Peterson appeared as a keynote speaker for our Annual Dinner in 1972, while he was U.S. Secretary of Commerce, and helped steer many successful programs after joining our Board. Our gratitude is immeasurable for all he brought to the Society. Our deepest condolences go to his family and friends.
