While the ‘Japonisme’ influence of ukiyo-e on Western painting has been explored extensively before, the National Museum of Western Art's latest comparative exhibition zooms in particularly on the impact that late-Edo master Katsushika Hokusai's work had on the likes of Monet, Cézanne and Degas. Composed of more than 200 pieces by these impressionist masters and other Western artists of the 19th century, plus an impressive 110 Hokusai works, it offers an in-depth analysis of how Hokusai's artistic approach shaped the development of Western forms of expression. For example, you'll see how Hokusai’s inclination to draw Mt Fuji from many different angles, as he did in the famous 'Thirty-Six Views', influenced Cézanne and provided the impetus for his 'Mont Sainte-Victoire' series. 

Note that free entrance to the exhibition is offered for high school students between January 2 and 8.
