Hokusai ― The Teacher-Student Showdown!
*Lecture room and library closed until further notice*
The Sumida Hokusai Museum’s latest special exhibition sets up a battle between the master and his students. While Hokusai is known as a great name in ukiyo-e, it is thought he had as many as 200 disciples who were taught the art by the master himself. This exhibition displays around 100 pieces of paired work where we can compare the offerings of Hokusai alongside his apprentices and descendants based on the same themes, including landscapes, animals and human figures.
Some changes will be made to the exhibition during the second period from March 10.
