Mr Monkey scampered through the V&A until he arrived at an exhibition of masterpieces of ukiyo-e, Japanese woodblock prints produced from the mid-18th century to the early 20th. Mr Monkey was most impressed by one of Katsushika Hokusai's 36 views of Mount Fuji (c. 1831) and by Kawanabe Kyosai's prints of Shoki the Demon Queller (1864-68).
You can read about the exhibition at the V&A website and see all 36 views of Mount Fuji at Wikipedia.
