Hokusai: Beyond the Great WaveWithout Japanese printmaker Katsushika Hokusai, "Impressionism might never have happened", so says Jason Farago, writing for the BBC. It's a claim backed up by none other than the British Museum whose exhibition examines "the moment when European art started turning Japanese". Looking at the last thirty years of Hokusai's career, from around 1820 to 1849, it features a broad selection of works - from the iconic blue and white wave print to major paintings, drawings, woodblock prints and illustrated books.
