Hokusai solo exhibition at Grand Palais

The exhibition spans the six periods in Hokusai’s life, illustrated by series of prints (with outstanding loans from the collection of the Musées Royaux d’Art et d’Histoire), books, and many paintings, some of which are on show for the first time, and some precious preparatory drawings. A total of over 500 pieces, many of which will never leave Japan again.

This exhibition is organized by the Reunion des Musées Nationaux Grand Palais and The Japan Foundation. The series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, and especially The Big Wave, have made Katsushika Hokusai (1760 – 1849) probably the world’s most famous Japanese artist. Although his work has already been shown in numerous exhibitions, the solo show at the Grand Palais is unprecedented in its scope.

The exhibition will be divided into two phases to protect the most fragile works. The overall argument and design will be the same, but about a hundred works will be replaced in the course of the exhibition: the prints will be replaced by equivalent prints, often from the same series; the paintings on silk and paper will be exchanged with works of a similar nature and quality.
