Hokusai in Museum of Kyoto

Hokusai (1769~1849) is a very famous Japanese painter and printmaker, and is considered one of the most outstanding figures of the Ukiyo-e painting.

To commemorate the 250th anniversary of Hokusai's birth, Museum of Kyoto is currently holding an exhibition of his masterpieces from the Honolulu Academy of Arts.

The exhibition period is from February 1st to March 25th (10AM to 8PM, closed on Monday). After Kyoto, they will be exhibited in Tokyo in April and May.

This is my collection of Hokusai --- "The Great Wave" pin badge (^^)

Hi Adriana,
It's been a while since I had uploaded my last blog. I'd been super busy with a few projects, but am almost done. Thank God! And thank you for your comments as always!!
