Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849)

Born in Edo (present-day Tokyo) in 1760, Hokusai began his artistic journey by apprenticing under Katsukawa Shunshō in 1778 and debuted the following year under the name Shunrō. He created a wide range of artworks, including actor portraits, beauties, and sumo wrestlers.

At the age of 40, he adopted the name Hokusai and gained recognition for his illustrations in picture books and other publications. Hokusai was a versatile artist who learned techniques from Chinese and Western painting, incorporating shading and perspective into his works. He is best known for his masterpiece series "Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji," which is considered the pinnacle of landscape prints.

Hokusai's art had a profound influence on Western artists, including Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet, and he remains a prominent figure in Japanese art history.

 

When you think of ukiyo-e, many people may immediately envision this iconic design. It's one of Katsushika Hokusai's most famous works, known for his unique and dynamic portrayal of waves. The turbulent, towering waves, the desperate figures clinging to their boats within, and the distant presence of Mount Fuji—all these elements come together in this masterpiece to vividly capture Hokusai's artistic vision.
