The most world-renowned Japanese artwork posed an impact on Western modern art in the late 19th century. That's when many Japanese artworks came into spotlight after the country opened its doors to the world. Even when Japan was a closed country, its artists studied Western art with a little amount of materials available. This woodblock print by Hokusai also reflects what he has acquired through his studies on Western art. From the artwork featuring waves and Mount Fuji, our program will shed light on the Eastern and Western artists' constant pursuit of new forms of beauty.
