The Art of Japan—New Acquisitions
The Art of Japan announced that not only have they just returned from a productive and heartily welcome trip to Japan, after a 2 1/2 year absence, but they have brought back an assembly of fine artworks. The first selection is on view on their website now and includes Sadahide's (1807-1873) Black Ships Departing California for Japan (shown here). So, as the Concubine (another New Acquisition) is doing above, raise a glass and enjoy the art! On view at The Art of Japan.
