While en route to Japan for his first time since childhood, Noguchi paid an unexpected visit to Beijing (then called Peking) from July 1930 to January 1931, where he was introduced to the work of traditional ink painting master Qi Baishi, whom he would go on to observe and study with. The exhibition and this book explore this pivotal but lesser-documented moment of Noguchi’s career, which resulted in some 100 ink scroll paintings, and features images of both men's work.
