Hokusai: The Great Wave, 1,000-Piece Puzzle

About the Artist

Born a commoner, Katsushika Hokusai passionately pursued art for most of his life and by the time of his death at age 89 was an artist of great renown. With each decade he believed his communion with nature grew and his art took on greater spirituality. This highly prolific artist mastered and pioneered artistic styles of late Edo-period Japan. Beginning with ukiyo-e, or “pictures of the floating world,” he created woodblock prints of figures under the direction of Katsukawa Shunshō. After his master’s death, he shifted his focus to nature, which he would continue for the rest of his life.
