Atmosphere in Japanese Painting, presenting a span of techniques for evoking atmosphere, features the artist Yoshio Ikezaki (Japan, active United States, born 1953), who makes his own paper and sumi, which he applies with his ki (氣), energy, to reveal the natural forces within the elements of water and air impelled by the flow of ki.

An entire level of the East Wing in the Pavilion for Japanese Art will be devoted to works of Yoshio Ikezaki.

Three new acquisitions are also featured—a pair of screens by Yamaato Kakurei (active late 18th–early 19th century) purchased by the 2017 Collectors Committee and showing waves crashing against rocks, Falling Green by Senju Hiroshi (Japan, active United States, born 1958), and Cloud 6 (Kumo) by Miya Ando (United States, born 1978).
