What’s happening in Asian art

Thomsen Gallery exhibition extended

May 15, 2023

Gōda Ippō (born 1875–1880, still active 1926), By the Fence (detail; right side of a screen pair), 1912, pair of two-panel folding screens, ink, mineral colors, and shell powder on silk, 61½ x 69 in. (156.5 x 175 cm.)

Japanese Art: 1910-1940 will continue until June 2, 2023 with a new selection of works.

The exhibition focuses on folding screens, hanging scroll paintings, and gold lacquer works from the Taisho and early Showa eras, 1910-1940. It was a period of great change during which superb works were created for the domestic market, in contrast to the export-oriented output during the preceding Meiji era (1868-1912).

Thomsen Gallery will be open exceptionally on a Saturday to participate in the annual Madison Avenue Spring Gallery Walk on Saturday, May 20, 2023.
