Why We Love This

The defining depiction of a wave, eternally frozen at the top of the crest, this print is arguably the most celebrated image of Japanese art. Mount Fuji stands in the backdrop, a still force against the roaring open sea. The original woodblock print, done in the ukiyo-e method, was created circa 1830 - 1833. Katsushika Hokusai was a Japanese artist of the Edo period. Hokusai is best known as author of the woodblock print series Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji which includes the famed print, The Great Wave of Kanagawa, created during the 1820s. Rooted in the Japanese tradition of depicting meisho-e, or scenes of a famous place, Hokusai invented strikingly new compositions.
