Some forthcoming events at NGV International:

Hokusai

Hokusai is the first major presentation in Australia of one of Japan’s most influential, prolific and everlastingly popular artists, Katsushika Hokusai (1760 – 1849).  An influential master of Japanese manga and a self-proclaimed ‘drawing maniac’, Hokusai produced a body of work comprising some of the most recognisable and reproduced images in the history of Asian art, most notably ‘The great wave’.

Spanning the artist’s entire career, Hokusai includes more than 170 works by the artist, comprising woodblock prints, rare paintings on silk never-before-seen in Australia and hand-printed manga (illustrated books).

Produced in a landmark international collaboration between the NGV and the Japan Ukiyo-e Museum (JUM), which houses the world’s largest and oldest collection of traditional Japanese woodblock prints, the exhibition includes the complete sets of Hokusai’s five career-defining series – all produced by the artist during his seventies and rarely on display in their totality – including Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, 1830–34, which features his iconic work The great wave off Kanagawa, c. 1830.

The exhibition also features all fifteen editions of The Hokusai Manga, the artist’s irreverent homage to Japanese humorous illustrations, which had an indelible impact on the development of contemporary manga in Japan and positioned Hokusai as a pioneer of the popular form.
