    Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) was the first Japanese artist to be internationally recognized, and he continues to inspire artists around the world. As the home of the largest and finest collection of Japanese art outside Japan—including the greatest variety of Hokusai works in any museum—the MFA is uniquely positioned to offer a comprehensive exhibition of this remarkable artist.

     "A Moody winter landscape by Hiroshige lends Eleanor Rubin its earthen colors to underscore a deep uneasiness in her own woodcut, "Winter Night."  Irregular bands of raw sienna, Venetian red and grey-blue sky roll like muted thunder across Rubin's broad panel.   Un unsettling black hawk-like form bearing down on a bowed female figure resembles a white counterpart in Hiroshige's compositions."  (Elizabeth Michelman, Artscope Magazine, July/August 2015)

    In the Steps of the Master Pupils of Hokusai

    Aug 29, 2015 – February 15, 2016

    Museum of Fine Art, Boston

    The amazing versatility of the great Katsushika Hokusai is reflected in the work of his many pupils, who were inspired by their master to produce outstanding prints and paintings of many different subjects: beautiful women, historical warriors, landscapes, still lifes, and fabulous monsters. This exhibition examines the first wave of Hokusai’s impact on the Japanese art world, during his own lifetime and shortly thereafter, as seen in the work of the artists who studied with him in person.
