Walk-In Tour: Hokusai and the Art of Japan

Arts & TheaterSaturday, August 1, 2020, 2:15 - 3:15 pm

The Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) is widely recognized for a single image—Great Wave Off the Coast of Kanagawa, an icon of global art—yet he produced thousands of works throughout his long life. Come view the exhibition Hokusai: Mad About Painting, which features works from the world's largest collection of paintings, sketches, and drawings by Hokusai. Works large and small are on view, from six-panel folding screens and hanging scrolls to paintings and drawings. Together, these works reveal an artistic genius who thought he might finally achieve true mastery in painting—if he lived to the age of 110.
