Hokuszai – “Over the Great Wave” – Pushkin Film Theater – Budapest

Hokuszai – “Over the Great Wave”  – color, English subtitled documentary, 90 minutes, will be screen at the Pushkin Film Theater in Budapest and plus other 5 Hungarian Film Theaters throughout  Hungary beginning in October, 2017.

The audience may follow the comprehensive exhibition and through his works, Hokusai’s painting life course up to his twilight age.

You will see the birth of modern art … A new kind of beauty is born brought alive by Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) who was one of the most renowned of Japan’s woodblock print artists, whose influence on European avant-garde in the age of Vincent Van Gogh.  Yet these brilliant designers who emerged from the pleasure district of Edo (now Tokyo) in the 18th and 19th centuries remain curiously enigmatic.

Katsushika Hokusai can be well deserved named like Japan’s Picasso.

Hokusai  name with other painting is distinguished by his work of  “The Great Wave” (1831). The  36 Views of Mount Fuji, which includes The Great Wave, the sacred volcano is seen in accurate perspective, western style, small on the horizon … so giving the scale to the Great Wave.

Hokusai’s abstract experiments with a single colour look forward not just to Van Gogh’s colour ecstasies but Andy Warhol’s Technicolour screen prints.

The film is brought by the Pannonia Entertainment.com. Ticket purchased on the spot.
