Katsushika Hokusai

Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) is a Japanese artist of the Edo period, renowned for his ukiyo-e paintings and prints. He transitioned through stages of brush paintings, art manuals, book illustrations, and even sculptures and yet through his decades of work, he maintained his crisp, detailed lines, his muted tones yet rich palette, and his flat planes yet clear perspective, from his depictions of sprawling valleys to his fifteen volumes of signature manga.

“Hokusai” The exhibition will be on view through August 9th at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
