Hokusai is Japan’s most famous artist, best known for his widely recognised wave painting. Born in 1760 to an artisan family he began painting at age six. His work includes paintings of courtesans, landscapes, nature, family life and Mt Fuji. The mastery of the skill of ukiyo- e-style woodblock prints and paintings is evident in much of his work. Hokusai once painted a blue curved line on a piece of paper, dipped a chicken’s feet in red paint and explained it was maple leaves floating on a river. He won a prize for this work. Please join Friends of MPRG for a very interesting film where you can find out more about Hokusai.
