The C.V. Starr East Asian Library is pleased to announce the opening of a special exhibit of fifteen prints by Seisai (the artist name of Peter MacMillan), from his series Thirty-Six New Views of Mount Fuji. This exhibition takes place in the Starr Library rare book reading room and will be on view through November 30, 2012.
Thirty-Six New Views of Mount Fuji explores the gap between traditional Japanese culture and the careless consumerism of present-day society. The artist uses lithograph printing, offset printing, hand painting, and gold leaf applied by hand in his prints, drawing upon Hokusai's motifs as well as those of other Japanese and Western artists.
