Japanese Prints: Hokusai at LACMA
at Los Angeles County Museum of Art
Apr 13, 2013 - Jul 28, 2014
The museum's collection includes excellent prints by the renowned Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849). Among the museum’s holdings are two of this artist’s most iconic works, popularly known as Red Fuji and The Great Wave. A recent gift from Max Palevsky added to the museum’s collection a complete set of the eight prints from Hokusai’s A Tour of Waterfalls in the Provinces.

In addition to these color woodblock prints, the current exhibition also features pages from woodblock printed books as well as preparatory drawings. Loans from the Barbara Bowman Collection include several surimono—commissioned prints made for specific occasions that typically employ special techniques or materials.
