Miss Hokusai screening at the British Museum

June 6, 2017

London's British Museum is holding a special screening of Keiichi Hara's award-winning feature film, Miss Hokusai, in concomitance with the exhibition, Hokusai: Beyond the Great Wave held at the museum from May 25 through August 13, 2017.

The exhibition focusses on the last 30 years of Hokusai's life - a time when he produced some of his most memorable masterpieces. Items will include prints, paintings and illustrated books, many of which are on loan from 32 different collections scattered across Japan, Europe and the USA. Many of the works are in the UK for the first time. This includes two magnificent and rarely seen painted ceiling panels for a festival cart, known as the Male Wave and the Female Wave, that Hokusai made for his patron in Obuse in 1845, when he was eighty-six. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see these extraordinary works together.

Established in 1753, the British Museum is the first national public museum in the world, and one of the largest, visited by nearly 6 million people every year. Its collection of Japanese ukiyo-e is said to be around 70,000 items.

Screening schedule:
Date: July 1, 2017 (Saturday)
Time: 14:30
Place: BP Lecture Theatre
