Katsushika Hokusai – part 2

1835 Self-Portrait as a Fisherman colour woodblock print with metallic elements 21.3 x 18.43 cm Art Institute of Chicago, IL
Katsushika Hokusai (1760 – 1849) was a Japanese ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world) painter and printmaker and painter, born in Edo (now Tokyo), and is best known for his woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji c. 1830-35 which includes the internationally recognized print The Great Wave off Kanagawa.


Hokusai created the series both as a response to a domestic travel boom and as part of a personal obsession with Mount Fuji itself. It was this series that secured Hokusai’s fame both in Japan and overseas.

This is part 2 of a 19 - part post on the works Katsushika Hokusai. For full biographical notes, and for earlier works, see part 1 also.
