  • British Museum |
  • Private View |
  • Monday 12 June 2017 - 09:00 until 10:00

Introduced by the Curator, this is a private view of what is expected to be a hugely popular exhibition. Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) is perhaps the most famous and influential of all Japanese artists. The exhibition will feature 180 paintings, brush drawings, prints and illustrated books by Hokusai, drawn from collections of the British Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and others in Japan, the USA and Europe. Hokusai’s most famous image The Great Wave begins the exhibition, surrounded by key works that led to its creation.

This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
