NEW YORK, NY.- An exceptionally fine Buddhist vajra dating from the 13th century, a pair of stunning and luminous 17th century gold-leaf screens of cherry blossoms, and an extraordinarily rare and resplendent surcoat once worn over royal armor and made of thousands of feathers are among the numerous treasures of Japanese art that will be on view in New York City during Asia Week 2014, held from March 14 to March 23, 2014.

A highlight of the 22-year-old event will be JADA 2014: An Exhibition by the Japanese Art Dealers Association, which brings together five of New York’s preeminent dealers in Japanese art: Erik Thomsen Gallery, Koichi Yanagi Oriental Fine Arts, Leighton R. Longhi, Inc., Oriental Fine Art, Mika Gallery, and Sebastian Izzard LLC Asian Art. The collaborative exhibition, with scores of works of art grouped by period and school rather than by dealer ownership, will be held from March 15 to March 19, 2014 at the Ukrainian Institute of America at 2 E. 79th St.

Additional, each of JADA’s members will hold a public exhibition in their galleries, with the exception of Leighton Longhi, who will exhibit works privately and by appointment only.

Seven other prominent galleries – one from Asia, one from Europe, and five from the United States – that handle Japanese art will be exhibiting during Asia Week as well: Bachmann Eckenstein Japanese Art, of Basel, Switzerland; Egenolf Gallery, of Burbank, CA; Floating World Gallery, of Chicago, IL; Hiroshi Yanagi Oriental Art, of Kyoto, Japan; Onishi Gallery, of New York, NY; Scholten Japanese Art of New York, NY; and The Art of Japan, of Medina, WA.

“The year now ending has been exceptional for Japanese art,” said Sebastian Izzard, owner of Sebastian Izzard LLC Asian Art and president of JADA. “The British Museum brought extensive crowds to its exhibition, Shunga: Sex and Pleasure in Japanese Art, which revealed the unsurpassed sensitivity of Japanese artists to composition, humor, and eroticism. In the Moment: Japanese Art from the Larry Ellison Collection at the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, was the revelatory first public exhibition of works from Mr. Ellison’s remarkable collection, one that he amassed with great discernment in a matter of decades. The Minneapolis Institute of Art greatly expanded its holdings in the field through the combined gift and purchase of works from the private collection of Bill and Libby Clarke and that of the Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture, of Hanford, CA, which the couple founded in 1995. Closer to home, the Metropolitan Museum of Art began integrating works from the collection of the late Mary Griggs Burke into its collections. Mrs. Burke also left hundreds of works to the Minneapolis Institute.

“We look forward to a robust and enlightening Asia Week 2014,” Mr. Izzard continued. “It will be a great week not only for the collaborative JADA exhibition and those held by its members and affiliates-but also the numerous independent galleries that specialize in Japanese art and those that are participating in Asia Week through the Asia Week New York Association.”
