Exhibition of Ukiyo-e Artist Katsushika Hokusai at Obuse, Japan: Media Contributions by Epson
By Graham K. Rogers
Perhaps the best known artists in the genre are Utamaro, Hiroshige and Hokusai. Utamaro is highly regarded for his images of women, while Hiroshige and Hokusai produced landscapes, street scenes as well as pictures of flowers and birds. The latter produced several series, but perhaps the most famous of all in the genre are Hokusai's Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, which includes perhaps the most iconic image of all time, the Great Wave off Kanagawa.
Epson has also produced expanded prints of the original works using a large-format printer (Epson Stylus Pro 11880). In the case of some of the works which were too large to be transported, Epson has produced images in a smaller size for the displays.
The exhibition is set to run until 30 June 2015.
