Hokusai: Mountain Grandeur

June 20, 2023(Tue.) - August 27, 2023(Sun.)
Hokusai depicted a variety of mountains, from Japan's highest mountain, Mt. Fuji, to the low artificial mountain, Mt. Tempōzan, which was created in Osaka during the Edo period (1603-1868). Through Hokusai's works of mountains, this exhibition introduces the relationship between mountains and Japanese people, including their beliefs, livelihoods, ghost stories, and explores Hokusai's diverse representations of mountains and their appeal.
