The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston has partnered with the Smithsonian's Freer Gallery of Art to restore an ancient Japanese hanging scroll from its collection. The conservation will take place in the museum’s Asian Paintings gallery, allowing visitors to observe the project’s progress first-hand. The scroll, which was painted in 1713 by Hanabusa Itchō,  will return to Japan after the five-month restoration, where it will be part of a touring exhibition.
