Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), the gakyo (fanatic painter), who for 70 years from his debut as an ukiyo-e artist at the age of 20 until his death at the age of 90, constantly challenged himself to depict all elements of the universe. In commemoration of the 260th anniversary of his birth, an unprecedented special exhibition was held at Tokyo Midtown Hall from July 2021, bringing together every page, every piece, and every image of his masterpieces “Hokusai’s Sketches (Hokusai manga)”, “Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji (Fugaku sanjūrokkei)” and “One Hundred Views of Mt. Fuji (Fugaku hyakkei)”.
