ZOOM DOCENT TOUR: Hokusai -- Mad About Painting, Part II - LFV Members & Volunteers only
Friday, February 19, 2021, 1:00 PM until 2:00 PM
Bethesda , MD 20816
ZOOM DOCENT TOUR: Hokusai and the Art of Japan
, Special Freer presentation. Second Hokusai Installation.
TOUR IS FOR LFV MEMBERS & VOLUNTEERS ONLY. SPACE IS LIMITED.
We had one docent tour in July for the First Installation. This is to show you some of his additional work.
The Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) is widely recognized for a single image—Great Wave Off the Coast of Kanagawa, an icon of global art—yet he produced thousands of works throughout his long life. Come view the exhibition Hokusai: Mad About Painting
, which features works from the world’s largest collection of paintings, sketches, and drawings by Hokusai. Works large and small are on view, from six-panel folding screens and hanging scrolls to paintings and drawings. Together, these works reveal an artistic genius who thought he might finally achieve true mastery in painting—if he lived to the age of 110.
The docent will have access to high resolution slides and a digital resource base. We can provide comments and questions to the docent prior to the tour, so that it is focused on the interests of our group. Group size is limited to 30 people!
