Designed by Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) in his 70s, Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji was a landmark in Japanese print publishing, with innovative compositions, techniques, and coloration. It established landscape as a new subject for Japanese prints. The exhibition features all 46 images in this series, as well as explores the spiritual meaning and emotional resonance of Mount Fuji in Hokusai's late career.
