LACMA already possessed a handful of renowned Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai's iconic prints in its permanent collection. But now, thanks to a recent donation from late art collector Max Palevsky's collection, the museum has the entire set of Hokusai's A Tour of Waterfalls in the Provinces series to add to its holdings. See the set at this exhibition of the mutedly vibrant color woodblock prints, as well as pages from woodlock-printed books and the artist's preparatory drawings.
