Hokusai: The World-Acclaimed Ukiyo-e Artist
Apr 29 - Jun 6¥800
Katsushika Hokusai’s woodblock print “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” is a long-standing icon in Japan’s art landscape, but many of his other works have remained hidden from the public. Among those to be showcased are his lesser-known paintings from his landscape series “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji” and some of the ukiyo-e master’s Western-influenced pieces. His earlier portraits of actors and yokai (ghost) paintings offer an even broader glimpse into his artistic contours. Now, the Hachioji Art Museum will curate 170 of Hokusai’s artworks to re-solidify his position as a pioneer of his time.
