Katsushika Hokusai is one of Japan’s most famous artists, with his iconic “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” included in the "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji" series. Hokusai Manga (or “Hokusai Sketches”) was the catalyst for the Japonism movement that swept through Europe during the 19th century and today the “Great Wave” is known around the globe.

But these works represent a mere fraction of Hokusai’s body of works, which were created over a career that spanned around 70 years. For the first time in over 10 years, a large and comprehensive Hokusai exhibition will be held in Tokyo, showcasing recently discovered works and masterpieces that he created, gathering from both in Japan and abroad.

Hokusai’s artistic life will be presented across six different chapters, which illustrate the evolution of his style and representative paintings of each period. From his debut creations at 20 years of age to his last painting at 90 years old, the exhibition will present around 480 different works that will be rotated throughout the weeks.
