The Smithsonian Institution and Washington, D.C. have been extolling the beauty of cherry blossoms since the early 1900s when the trees that now line the nearby Tidal Basin were given to the United States by Japan. This celebrates these enduring symbols of renewal while evoking the motifs of many print, painted and ceramic artworks in our Freer Gallery of Art.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
