  • 260th anniversary of Birth of Hokusai
    Special exhibition “Hokusai-zukushi”

    22 July – 17 September 2021
    Tokyo Midtown Hall, Roppongi


    Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was an “Old Man Crazy to Paint” – so he called himself – who tried to depict everything in the world for seventy years of his life, from the debut of his career as an ukiyo-e artist at age twenty until his death at age ninety.

    In commemoration of the 260th anniversary of Hokusai’s birth, the present show will take place as a tribute, highlighting his three magnum opus “Hokusai Manga“, “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” and “One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji“.

    The Japanese expression “zukushi” makes a compound noun that connotates “a whole lot of things” related to something – in this case, Hokusai.

    And thus, this show scheduled to coincide with the Olympic year, initially in 2020, will be an unprecedented “Housai-zukushi” in its scope – all pages, all illustrations and all pieces from these Big Three opus by Hokusai will be presented to the public, at the same time in the same place.
