Hideo Date (January 5, 1907 – January 6, 2005) was a Japanese American painter who combined aspects of traditional Japanese painting with Modernist American Synchronism. A contemporary of Benji Okubo and Tyrus Wong, Date was a part of the Los Angeles art scene and the Art Students League prior to WWII. During the war he was incarcerated first at Santa Anita and then at Heart Mountain, where he continued his pursuit of art, starting art classes for the incarcerees. After the war Date relocated to New York where he continued to paint for decades. His art is characterized by sinuous line, bold color, fantastic images, and stunning technique; his life by courage and a single-minded pursuit of beauty. This book accompanies a retrospective exhibition organized by the JANM in 2001. 47 color and some B/W photographs
