About Hokusai Katsushika:
Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) was a renowned Japanese ukiyo-e artist known for his influential woodblock prints, including the iconic “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji” series. His art had a significant impact on Western art, particularly the Impressionist movement in Europe.
Hokusai, born in Edo (now Tokyo), started as a woodblock engraver apprentice. He excelled in various genres, but his landscape prints, highlighting nature’s beauty and featuring Mount Fuji, gained him the most acclaim. “The Great Wave off Kanagawa,” one of Hokusai’s famous prints, showcases his mastery of composition, line work, and use of color. His bold brushstrokes, attention to detail, and intricate depictions of natural elements defined his artistic style.
