NamePilgrimage to Hokusai's Waterfalls
DescriptionThe newly redesigned Japanese gallery spotlights WAM’s very rare, first edition impressions of A Tour of Waterfalls in the Provinces (ca. 1833), a masterpiece woodblock-print series by the famous Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849). Pioneering the theme of falling water, Hokusai made liberal use of the newly fashionable imported Prussian blue pigment and imbued the prints with atmospheric breadth and timeless intimacy through his faith in the purifying power of waterfalls. A permanent display of Japanese ceramics, ranging in date from 17th century to the 21st century, as well as the imposing early 10th century wooden sculpture of the Eleven-headed Kannon, will also be on view.
