The Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) is widely recognized for a single image—Great Wave Off the Coast of Kanagawa, an icon of global art—yet he produced thousands of works throughout his long life. Come view the exhibition Hokusai: Mad About Painting, which features works from the world’s largest collection of paintings, sketches, and drawings by Hokusai. Works large and small are on view, from six-panel folding screens and hanging scrolls to paintings and drawings. Together, these works reveal an artistic genius who thought he might finally achieve true mastery in painting—if he lived to the age of 110.

Waitlist: If this event fills, a "WAITLIST" version of the event will be posted online and available for registration at noon on the next day the Encore Learning office is open. Encore Learning Staff will let you know if you move from waitlist to tourist. Feel free to add your name to the waitlist, because we might be able to schedule another tour.

We will be using the online Zoom platform of the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery. This tour is interactive and features high resolution images of artworks and provides virtual visitors the opportunity to engage in conversations with the museum’s docents. Registrants will be sent via email contact information for tech support before the tour.
