Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was born in Edo, Hongo, and began his artistic journey in 1778 when he apprenticed under Katsukawa Shunsho. The following year, he made his debut under the name Shunro. Hokusai produced various works during his career, including actor portraits, beautiful women, and sumo wrestling illustrations.

At the age of 40, he adopted the name Hokusai and continued to excel in his craft. He contributed to illustrated books and honed his skills by studying Chinese and Western painting techniques, incorporating techniques such as shading and perspective. His masterpiece, "Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji," is considered the pinnacle of landscape prints.

Hokusai's art had a profound impact on Western painters, including Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet, making him one of Japan's most influential artists and a representative figure in art history.

This artwork, often referred to as 'Akafuji' (Red Fuji), stands alongside 'The Great Wave off Kanagawa' as one of Katsushika Hokusai's most renowned creations. It enjoys popularity both domestically and internationally. 'Akafuji' showcases the majestic Mount Fuji in a simple yet vibrant color palette, making it a masterpiece that epitomizes the genre of landscape ukiyo-e prints. One notable feature distinguishing it from traditional ukiyo-e landscape prints is the absence of human figures.
