EVENT DETAILS
Thumbnail for - Mark Tobey and Teng Baiye: Seattle/Shanghai The modest exhibit running in tandem with Isamu Noguchi and Qi Baishi: Beijing 1930 at the Frye attempts to break new ground in considering cross-cultural connections shared between artists. Three decades before Life magazine published its famous article hailing four “mystic painters of the Northwest,” which cemented Tobey’s image as a leading figure of the so-called “Northwest School,” the painter learned Chinese calligraphy from his friend Teng Baiye. That early friendship provides a glimpse into Tobey’s mature work and raises intriguing connections including the role the friendship may have played in the evolution of Tobey’s characteristic “white writing” style.
