A tsunami of Hokusai

A tsunami of Hokusai

The late 18th and early 19th century Japanese artist and printmaker Katsushika Hokusai is best known for his classic ukiyo-e woodblock print, The Great Wave Off Kanagawa, from the series 36 Visions Of Mount Fuji. His work seemed to embody the soul of his native land and was an influence on both Art Nouveau and Impressionism. Until January 18th the Grand Palais offers a chronological retrospective on a scale quite unprecedented, with some 500 works on display. In order to preserve the most fragile examples of Hokusai art, the exhibition is designed in two parts, while maintaining the overarching story. The first set of prints will be replaced by equivalent prints often from the same series, the paintings on silk and paper will be rotated; a fitting arrangement for such a prolific creator, who changed his artistic identity many times during his long career.
