[Perspectives] Late, great art

“Nothing I drew before my seventieth year is worth looking at”, wrote the 75-year-old Hokusai. “At 73 I partially understood external form, at 80 I’ll progress further, at 90 I’ll penetrate the hidden significance of things. By 100 I hope to be divinely inspired. When I’m 110, every dot, every line I draw, will possess a life of its own.” Hokusai: Beyond the Great Wave verifies this prophesy, by celebrating the late, great flowering of this Japanese painter’s art. The exhibition is accompanied by events exploring artistic genius in older age.
