Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art Presents Hokusai and the Art of Japan

Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art Presents Hokusai and the Art of Japan

This is a one-time special streaming event that will not be recorded.

The library, in collaboration with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art, will present a virtual live-streamed presentation on Hokusai and the Art of Japan as part of the library’s “Tour of Japan” month. The Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) is widely recognized for a single image—Great Wave Off the Coast of Kanagawa, an icon of global art—yet he produced thousands of works throughout his long life. During the live-streamed presentation, tour the former exhibition Hokusai: Mad About Painting, which featured works from the world’s largest collection of paintings, sketches, and drawings by Hokusai. The exhibition included works large and small, from six-panel folding screens and hanging scrolls to paintings and drawings. Together, these works reveal an artistic genius who thought he might finally achieve true mastery in painting—if he lived to the age of 110.
