Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) is arguably Japan's most famous and influential artist, and the British Museum's new exhibition will explore the last thirty years of his life -- a period when he created some of his most greatest masterpieces.

On show will be a selection of landscapes, including his iconic Great Wave -- which is itself just one in a series of views of Mt Fuji. There will also be some beautiful depictions of flora and fauna, intimate domestic scenes, and even some scenes with supernatural creatures like ghosts and deities.

The exhibition offer you a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see these amazing works collected together, many of which are on loan from Japan, Europe and the USA.
