British Museum Presents: HOKUSAI

The Great Wave and beyond

The British Museum presents Hokusai: beyond the Great Wave, close up and from the comfort of the Lexi. This phenomenally popular artist has influenced High Culture (Monet, Van Gogh and Picasso) as well as Popular Culture, acquiring his own emoji and inspiring Manga. There will be an exclusive guided viewing of the BM’s exhibition – which includes work that has never been seen outside of Japan – plus a fascinating documentary exploring Hokusai’s legacy.  This film features interviews with David Hockney, Grayson Perry and Maggi Hambling on how he has influenced their work.

And the documentary benefits from something so cutting edge - 8K video technology, from Japan - that we don't even have the equipment to properly show it here!  Take a look at this trailer for a flavour.
