Hokusai: Beyond the Great Wave (British Museum)

Hokusai created sublime works during the last thirty years of his life, right up to his death at the age of ninety. Publications have hitherto presented his long career as a chronological sequence. This book takes a fresh approach based on innovative scholarship: thematic groupings of works are related to the major spiritual and artistic quests of Hokusais life. Hokusais personal beliefs are studied here through major brush paintings, drawings, woodblock prints and illustrated books. The book gives due attention to the contribution of Hokusais daughter Eijo (Oi), an accomplished artist in her own right. Hokusai continually explored the mutability and minutiae of natural phenomena in his art. His late subjects and styles were based on a mastery of eclectic Japanese, Chinese and European techniques and an encyclopaedic knowledge of nature, myth, and history. Mount Fuji was the most significant model for Hokusai in his quest for immortality. This collection of Hokusais works draws on the finest to be found in Japan and around the world, making this the most important publication for years on Hokusai, and a uniquely valuable overview of the artists late career.

British Museum, London 25 May - 13 August 2017. The Great Wave is part of the series Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, by Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), which he began at the age of 70.

Hokusai's most iconic print, 'The Great Wave' will be featured, a fine, early impression acquired in 2008 by the British Museum with the assistance of the Art Fund.

Hokusai is the subject of The British Museum’s summer blockbuster Beyond the Great Wave. The exhibition stories the artist’s career from around the point, in his 70s, that he created his most famous print: The Great Wave off Kanagawa. One of the most iconic images humanity has ever produced, its influence swept across the world and remains entrenched in global cultural consciousness.
