Ingenious 'Hokusai'

There is not now, and there never will be, a more ingenious, natural printmaker than the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Japanese master, Hokusai. His 1823 woodblock print "Stone (Ishi)"—one of three prints based on the children's hand game of rock-paper-scissors—is reproduced from the Museum of Fine Arts Boston's concise new catalogue to the current, deeply extensive Hokusai show, which features 230 artworks made over the course of seven decades. One of our recommended Mother's Day gift books, this volume gives special attention to Hokusai's important prints, Manga drawings, paintings, lanterns and rare models for paper toys.
