Awakenings: Zen Figure Painting in Medieval Japan - Japan Society - Art - Review - New York Times

If you're in New York, you might want to check out this art show:

". . . with four dozen paintings of Buddhist gods and saints hung in shrinelike alcoves, it is certainly visually transporting. And it covers a broad swath of time and geography, bringing together 13th- to 16th-century hanging scrolls not only from Japan but also from China, where Zen, called Chan in Chinese, originated."

It's not a bad review of the show, but I did have to take exception to a few of the critic's comments. Please see http://shokai.blogspot.com/2007/04/holland-in-two-senses-of-term.html
for a clarification of some of Holland Cotter's remarks.
