A stunning documentary and exclusive guided tour of the forthcoming British Museum exhibition Hokusai: Beyond the Great Wave.


Hokusai was one of Japan’s greatest artists and produced numerous works during his 90 year lifetime between 1760 to 1849. He is considered to be on a par with other great global artists such as Rembrandt and Picasso and is best known for the iconic print ‘The Great Wave’ – one of the World’s most famous images.


Using extraordinary close-ups and ground-breaking technology, Hokusai’s paintings and prints are examined by world experts who are at the forefront of Digital Art History.
