Hokusai

葛飾北斎




Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849)

On Saturday we went to see Hokusai at the Martin Gropius Bau, a large exhibition with over 400 prints and paintings from his beginnings as an artist through to his last works. A lot to see, but (except for the masses of visitors) it wasn't tiring at all. Impressive and somehow inspiring. And again the question: What is art and what is craftsmanship?
