The Art of Mt. Fuji @ Sway Gallery London | England | United Kingdom

The tallest mountain of Japan, Mount Fuji, could be seen from almost anywhere in Edo, the capital of Japan. From 17th to late 19th century, when Ukiyo-e, Japanese woodblock prints were in the height of its popularity, this iconic mountain made an impact upon the great
masters such as Hokusai (1760-1849) and Hiroshige (1797-1858) and later continued to inspire Shin-hanga artists such as Hasui (1883-1957).

This exhibition, held in collaboration with Japanese Gallery, focuses on Mt. Fuji from various artist’s viewpoints, depicted in a variety of seasons, colours, and climates. Immortalised in these prints, the exhibition is a display of the admiration of this icon spanning the centuries.
