Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) is the best-known Japanese artist, famous worldwide. He was a font of inspiration for many European painters, such as Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh. Among his beloved masterpieces is the series of prints known as The Great Wave of Kanagawa.
The RMN-Grand Palais, a public cultural institution founded in 2011 in Paris, celebrates the Japanese master with an exhibition of over 500 works organized as etchings, drawings, prints, intaglio and works on silk.
Hokusai transports us to a dimension that is both refined and crude, when Japan was still magical, where man and nature are thrown together in an eternal search for harmony.
