Event information:
The Edo era woodblock print artist Hokusai Katsushika, well known for his print collection, Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. Did you know that for a time, he lived in Nagoya?
Exactly 200 years ago from today, Hokusai held an event in which he drew an impromptu 18-meter tall picture of the large Buddhist figure Daruma. This became the beginning of Hokusai's nickname of "Darusen" (an abbreviation of "Daruma sensei," meaning "Daruma master"). Nagoya has a rather deep connection with Hokusai, and his Hokusai Manga (a collection of images created by him) was even created in Nagoya. In this exhibition, the connection between Hokusai and Nagoya is introduced with a focus on the excitement surrounding the event in which the large Daruma was drawn.
