Hokusai

Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was a Japanese artist of the Edo period, which lasted between 1603 and 1868, during which the arts flourished in Japan.

Hokusai is best known for his Mount Fuji set of woodblock prints, in particular the internationally recognised Great Wave off Kanagawa, created during the 1820s.

The work of the master printmaker is displayed at the Grand Palais in an exhibition divided into two phases to protect the most fragile works. Although the exhibition layout remains the same, about 100 works will be replaced over the course of the exhibition which will close from 20 Nov-1 Dec to faciliate this operation.

Many of the prints will be replaced with less fragile versions of the same image, often from the same series, while the paintings on silk and paper will also be swapped for similar works.

This exhibition is organised by the Grand Palais and The Japan Foundation.

Wed-Mon: 10.00-22.00
