Also on the docket was a visit to the Sackler Gallery, where two other single-artist/single-work exhibitions featured the work of Katsushika Hokusai and Kano Kazunobu.
Hokusai: Thirty-Six View of Mount Fuji offers pristine and rare impressions of all forty-six images from this wildly popular print series, including a rare "Pink Fuji" early impression of Fuji in the early-morning sun, which became more popular in its later, more deeply colored incarnation that is more familiar as "Red Fuji."
There was so much more that I didn't get to see in DC, all as part of the National Cherry Blossom Festival celebrations. This year marks the 100 year anniversary of the gift of 3000 cherry trees from the city of Tokyo to the city of Washington in 1912. (Just imagine what a major undertaking that would have been at that time!!)
