The Kraków National Museum's collection of woodblock prints and other materials by famous Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) will be on display in the museum's main building. Known for his colourful woodprint series 'Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji' - which includes the often-reproduced 'Great Wave in Kanagawa' - Hokusai's work was brought to Poland by Feliks Jasieński and its popularity has never dimmed. A huge enthusiast of Japanese art, Jasieńśki's own words guide visitors through this exhibit of Japanese landscapes from the Edo period (1603–1868), including the famous 'Great Wave' and other images of Mount Fuji, images of travellers on the Tokaido trade route, and depictions of ghosts, demons and characters from Japanese legends. The objects on view also include Hokusai’s pattern books for artists and craftsmen, and surimono prints made for special occassions.
