CHANGING AND UNCHANGING THINGS: Noguchi and Hasegawa in Postwar Japan

Saburo Hasegawa
From Lao-tzu

Ink on paper

Collection of Matthew Reichman

Their food is plain and good, their clothes fine but simple, their homes secure; They are happy in their ways. Though they live within sight of their neighbors, And crowing cocks and barking dogs are heard across the way, Yet they leave each other in peace while they grow old and die.
(Trans. Gia-fu Feng and Jane English)
