Hokusai: The Great Wave, Poster

About the Artist

Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) passionately pursued art for most of his life and achieved great renown by the time he died at 89. Highly prolific, he 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, Hokusai shifted his focus to nature for the rest of his life. With each decade, he believed his communion with nature grew and his art took on greater spirituality.
