This special exhibition focuses on the life and legacy of Hasegawa Tōhaku (1539-1610), founder of the Hasegawa school of painting and one of 16th-century Japan's leading artistic innovators. As the first ever exhibition in the U.S. dedicated to Tōhaku, A Giant Leap traces the artist's evolution from a provincial painter of Buddhist subjects to a master favored by shogun, samurai, and other cultural luminaries. Vibrantly painted screens and scrolls, including Important Cultural Properties, illustrate Tōhaku's dramatic transformation. Steep yourself in the Golden Age of Japanese art and revel in Tōhaku's most sumptuous and atmospheric masterpieces in this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition.
