Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in United States

WASHINGTON, D.C.  •  Arthur M. Sackler Gallery  •  Ongoing
The show focuses on the paintings created during a career of more than 70 years of the great Japanese artist Hokusai, whose print Great Wave Off Kanagawa is one of most widely recognized images ever produced. The large variety of Hokusai's works on view range from large, colorful folding screens and scrolls and fans to small drawings and sketches, prints, and printed books. Paintings such as the famous Boy Viewing Mount Fuji, from the Freer Gallery's collection of Hokusai's original paintings, are on display with important works from public and private museums and collections in Japan, Europe, and the United States. A fully illustrated scholarly catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
