The Grand Palais is exhibiting 500 works from the most famous Japanese artist of the world: Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849). All at once a painter, an engraver and a graphic artist, Hokusai is famous for his landscape prints that bear testimony of the soul of Japan, of the country’s spiritualism, and of the traditional principles of Japanese art too. This gigantic re-examination was divided into two sections, so that the visitor can fully understand the colossal dimension of the artist’s work. This exhibition is definitely unique since a major part of the works presented in Paris will not leave Japan again after that, from 2016 onwards, at the opening of the Hokusai Museum in Tokyo.
