Three newly-conserved Japanese hanging scrolls are a highlight in this installation of Chinese and Japanese art dating from 2000 BCE to the present. The earliest scroll, Gibbon on a Rock by KanÃµ Yasunobu (1613Â1685), is one of only five KanÃµ-school ink paintings in the Allen's collection. It illustrates the important connections between KanÃµ painters and Zen Buddhism.
