Katsushika Hokusai's masterpiece “Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji” was drawn based on the theme of views of Mount Fuji from different locations. As the name suggest, 36 major works were originally intended, but as they gained popularity a further 10 were added for a total of 46. The most renowned of these is “The Great Wave Off Kanagawa”, praised by artists such as Van Gogh and Debussy, and a great influence on Western artists.
Around swirling eddies and a breaking wild wave, Mount Fuji stands unperturbed in the distance. It's a dynamic composition characterized by a landscape that is both active and static along with the incorporation of the perspective of Western-style painting. In the blue of the waves, as well as traditional indigo, the synthetic pigment Prussian blue, which had recently started to be imported at that time, is also used.
Hokusai was 72 years old the time “Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji” was brought out. A Japanese historical masterpiece from an artist who even in old age still had an insatiable desire for creation. The woodblock is made of durable cherry tree and the paper is made of the living national treasure, handmade Japanese washi paper.
