July 13, 2015

The Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden has acquired new works by a dozen artists or artist groups from Iran, Japan, Mexico, Poland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. Rhyme-S (1960) by Natsuyuki Nakanishi joins other paintings that push the boundaries of abstraction and augments the museum’s holdings of postwar Asian art.
