Mt Fuji by Hokusai Exhibition

Mt Fuji by Hokusai Exhibition

Mt Fuji by Hokusai: Thirty-six Views of Mt Fuji and One Hundred Views of Mt Fuji
Fine Wind, Clear Morning, also known as Red Fuji, and the Great Wave off Kanagawa by Hokusai Katsushika (1760-1849) are two of Japan’s most iconic artworks. Both are part of Hokusai’s 36 Views of Mt.Fuji series which the artist embarked upon at the age of 70 and at the height of his powers. The series proved so popular that there ended up being 46 views to satisfy demand. Hokusai followed this series with a more affordable monochrome collection, One Hundred Views of Mt.Fuji in which he incorporated narrative stories into his prints.
This exhibition shows 159 works related to these two great serial masterpieces and is sure to be a huge hit, a perfect dose of Japanese culture to start off the New Year.
