Japanese print enthusiast Tom Silver will explore the work of Japan’s most famous artist, Katsushika Hokusai, in a talk at the Sturgis Library on Tuesday, November 2, at 6 PM.

Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1859) is best known for his woodblock print series “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji” which includes the iconic print which has come to be known as “The Great Wave.”

Mr. Silver will discuss Hokusai in the context of his life and times. The presentation will also focus on Japanese prints of the Edo period, also known as the “Floating World.”

Registration is required for this event. To sign up, email SturgisReference@comcast.net. The Sturgis Library is at 3090 Main Street in Barnstable.
