A life changing exhibit with the priceless gift of doing a sumi ink painting workshop with Max Gimblett. May the Oxherding series return again to the Japan Society, may we work together to publish a book of the incredible work of Max and of Lewis Hyde, to share with one and all

A lovely show. Masterful rendering of oxherding by Hyde and Gimblett. The ink drawings along with the text provided a beautiful narrative.

This show needs to be one of your experiences at the Japan Society.

Hyde and Gimblett have done something so exceptional. What a gift. An inspirational show which I deeply enjoyed. Masterful!

Between this original, and very convincing rendition of Oxherding, and so many of Hakuin's classics upstairs, I left Japan Society feeling proud and inspired.
