1923/24

He becomes friendly with Teng Guei, a Chinese student at the University of Washington, who teaches him the techniques of East Asian painting (brushwork, calligraphy and compositional methods) and spirituality.

Tobey is "resident artist" in Dartington Hall, Devonshire, Great Britain. He gets to know Pearl S. Buck, Aldous Huxley, Bernard Leach, Rabindranath Tagore, Rudi Shankar and many others who are also teaching there and for whom, as for himself, the connection of oriental and western ideas is very important.

1934

Trip to Europe and Asia. He spends a month in a Zen monastery near Kyoto, Japan. He studies Zen teachings, Zen painting, meditates and spends much time studying calligraphy. In Japan Tobey finds - as he later described it himself - the "most decisive calligraphic impulse" which would later lead him to the "white writing". At the same time, however, he is aware that he is and will always be a man of the West.
