Gavin's presentations are always thorough, fascinating and well-presented. Hokusai's Great Wave was particularly interesting to me, since it probed deeply into all aspects of this beautiful and well-known woodblock print.
Dr. Gavin Campbell was very well organized and explained thoughts clearly. I enjoyed the analysis of the wave woodcut and how it related to other Hokusai prints. I enjoyed the two brief periods of music while looking at other prints. Very enjoyable and would recommend the talk to people who love all Japanese prints.
Learned so much more than I thought I knew about Japanese printmaking in the 19th century. His lecture and the observations of the other attendees made it a perfect interactive learning experience. His visuals and even music added so much. Will follow his offerings in the future
A fine introduction to Hokusai’s life, the process and culture of producing woodblocks, and the artistry on view in “The Great Wave.” Another one of Dr. Campbell’s amazing seminars!
