Director’s Desk: Same Wavelength

Ogata Korin, Rough Waves, c. 1704-09. Two-panel screen; ink, color, and gold on gilded paper, 57 11/16 x 65 1/8 in. Metropolitan Museum of Art. Fletcher Fund, 1926.

I read the review this morning of the new exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Japan Society in New York of the Japanese Rimpa painters. I couldn’t help but notice the wave images by Ogata Korin and Sakai Hoitsu which made me think of the beautiful paintings currently on view in our Vradenburg CafĂ© by the contemporary Brazilian artist Sandra Cinto.
