hokusai inspiration and influence photoThanks to the popularity of the instantly recognizable Great Wave—cited everywhere from book covers and Lego sets to anime and emoji—Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) has become one of the most famous and influential artists in the world.

This major exhibition organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), takes a new approach to the work of the versatile master, pairing more than 100 of his woodblock prints, paintings, and illustrated books from the MFA’s renowned collection with more than 200 works by his teachers, students, rivals, and admirers.

These unique juxtapositions demonstrate Hokusai’s impact through the centuries and around the globe—seen in works by, among others, his daughter Katsushika Ōi, his contemporaries Utagawa Hiroshige and Utagawa Kuniyoshi, and modern and contemporary artists including Loïs Mailou Jones, John Cederquist and Yoshitomo Nara.

Timed-entry exhibition tickets (general admission included) will go on sale February 8 at 10 am for MFA members and February 14 at 10 am for the general public. Member Preview will take place from March 22–25.
