Natixis proud of the successful Hokusai exhibition

January 18, 2015 was the end of the Hokusai exhibition, an unprecedented monograph supported by Natixis in partnership with Réunion des musées nationaux – Grand Palais and the Japan Foundation* and held at Grand Palais in Paris.

The exhibition met with great success. Every day, over 4,000 visitors made their way across the rooms of Grand Palais and admired the Japanese artist's books, prints, paintings and mangas.

 

Because of their fragility, many of the works exhibited in Paris will never leave Japan again after the opening of the Hokusai Institute in Tokyo, scheduled for 2016.

 

Clients, shareholders and employees of Natixis also appreciated and discovered Hokusai's works under exceptional conditions during events organized by our bank.
