This groundbreaking documentary is the first British film to be made about the world-renowned Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849), an influence on the likes of painter David Hockney. The documentary is followed by a viewing of the much-anticipated British Museum exhibition Hokusai: Beyond the Great Wave. Presented by art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon along with artists Grayson Perry CBE, Kate Malone and Maggi Hambling CBE, the tour of the exhibition has been created especially for a cinema audience and features the curator Tim Clark and scholar Roger Keyes.
The exhibition traces artists’ depictions of the naked body in Western art over some 200 years based on artworks in the Tate’s renowned collection. The exhibition is supported by the British Council.
