A lunchtime lecture by Tim Clark, Head of the Japanese section in the Department of Asia, British Museum. How does modern manga relate to ukiyo-e (‘floating world pictures’), the traditional school of popular art in Japan? Is the celebrated print by Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) the first example of anime? A key work central to Hokusai’s long career was , a series of 15 printed volumes that reproduced his ‘random sketches’ over more than half a century, from 1814-1878. But did manga in 1814 mean the same as manga does today? Tim Clark, co-curator of the Museum’s 2017 exhibition , sifts the evidence.
