This breathtaking composition of “The Great Wave Off Kanagawa” by the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai ensures its reputation as a masterpiece. It was originally a polychrome woodblock print printed in ink and color on paper.
Katsushika Hokusai (1760 – 1849) dominated Japanese Ukiyo-e woodblock printing. The date of this print is ca. 1830-32 during the Edo period (1615–1868). He, who changed his name as he changed artistic styles, is best known for his woodblock print series “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji.” This print is one of the series. Between 1796 and 1820, he produced an estimated 30,000 book illustrations and color prints inspired by Japanese traditions, legends and daily life. He created his most important works after age 60, in which Mount Fuji was often a spiritually significant element.
