Hokusai: Selected Works from the Permanent Collection
Few Japanese artists have attained the level of notoriety achieved by Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) in Japan and the West alike. Though best known for his masterful ukiyo-e prints, Hokusai worked in a variety of media, including paintings and drawings, and depicted a wide array subjects during his long and prolific career. This small exhibition, drawn exclusively from the Museum’s permanent collection of woodblock prints, features a selection of dynamic compositions from such celebrated series as Thirty-six Views and Mt. Fuji, Journey to the Waterfalls of All Provinces, and One-hundred Poems by One-hundred Poets as well as book illustrations.
