|Notice of co-sponsorship of the “Exhibition of the Work of Hokusai Katsushika, an Ukiyoe Master of Landscape, Beauty, and Conceit”|
|October 2, 2012|
|As part of our cultural and social contribution program, Daiwabo Information System will co-sponsor the “Exhibition of the Work of Hokusai Katsushika, an Ukiyoe Master of Landscape, Beauty, and Conceit”, organized by the Yomiuri Shimbun.
Hokusai Katsushika (1760-1849) is a master of Ukiyoe (Japanese wood block prints), famous worldwide and said to have been a strong influence on impressionists such as Monet and Van Gogh. This exhibition introduces Hokusai’s masterpieces from the three perspectives of “Landscape, Beauty, and Conceit.”
The first section, featuring “Landscape”, provides visitors with a composite view of the landscapes he depicted, from his early years as an artist through to old age, with emphasis on the famous “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” series. The second section, focusing on “Beauty”, shows a history of the splendid beauties he captured in his paintings and wood engravings. The third section, entitled “Conceit”, reveals his wide-ranging, often humorous, always exciting and impressive sensibility at work. In addition to the three sections, we have created a special corner, “Osaka and Hokusai”, exploring the artist’s relation to Osaka, a scarcely known aspect of his life and work.
