One of the most popular Ukiyo-e airtists, HOKUSAI KATSUSHIKA is best known with “The Great Wave of kanagawa”.
A special exhibition is held at the tallest building of Japan, ABENO HARUKAS, Osaka from October 6 to November 19 2017.
Hokusai was an Ukiyo-e artist of rare talent who influenced Van Gough and Monet. The “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji” will be used for the new passport, and Hokusai is becoming a symbol of Japan. The exhibition will focus on his original drawings from the last 30 years of his life, after reaching the age of 60, and investigate the world he sought and depicted until he was 90.
