This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A Japanese painter and writer, Saburo Hasegawa, graduated from Tokyo Imperial University in 1929.  There he researched Toyo Sesshu for his thesis.  In 1930 he went to Paris where his work was selected for the Salon d'Automne; on returning two years later to Japan, he exhibited in the 19th Nika Ten (Second Division Society exhibition). In 1948 he exhibited At the Lake (1948; Kobe, Konan Senior High Sch.) in the 12th Jiyu Bijutsuka Kyokai Ten (Society of Independent Artists exhibition) at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum.

In 1951 he corresponded with Franz Kline, exchanging views on Eastern and Western cultures. He exhibited Rhapsody: At the Fishing Village (frottage on paper mounted on four-fold screen, 1952; Tokyo, N. Mus. Mod. A.) at the Nihon Gendai Bijutsu Ten (Exhibition of Contemporary Japanese Art), organized by the Tokyo Reader's Digest in 1952.

A year later he had a one-man exhibition at the New Gallery, New York and was a founder-member of the Nihon Abusutorakuto Ato Kurabu (Japanese Abstract Art Club). In 1954 he participated in the symposium Abstract Art in the Contemporary World (New York, MOMA). From 1955 he lectured in art history at the California College of Art and Crafts, Oakland, CA.
