Hokusai: The Master's Legacy

Edited with text by Rossella Menegazzo. Text by Donatella Failla.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Hokusai: The Master's Legacy.'

The undisputed master of ukiyo-e, Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) is celebrated not only for his series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji but also for his great versatility expressed in his treatment of all types of subjects: from landscapes to nature, portraits of kabuki actors, beautiful women, warriors and even ghosts and spirits, semilegendary beings and animals. Hokusai is also associated with restless change: of residence, of name (more than 30!) and of style. He had dozens of followers, and each of them represents an aspect of the master’s vast oeuvre. These include Shinsai, Hokkei and Gakutei, who in turn influenced the following generation of artists.

Through a selection of over 250 works from the Municipal Museum of Chiba and other Japanese collections, this publication offers a reading of Hokusai that also includes his legacy, accompanying and comparing his output with that of others who followed in his footsteps and gave life to new lines, forms and balances of color within the classic themes of ukiyo-e.

"When we gaze afar, across the distant field of heaven, upon the peak of Mt. Fuji in Suruga that has stood—divine, lofty and noble—ever since the heaven and earth were parted, we see that even the light of the sun crossing the sky is shaded, the light of the moon shining at night goes unseen, and the white clouds shrink from crossing its face. But the snow, forever it falls! We shall tell the tale, by word of mouth and from generation to generation, of the lofty peak of Fuji." —Yamabe Akahito, seventh century AD, excerpted from Hokusai: The Master's Legacy continue to blog
