Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) is a world-reknown pioneer of landscape woodblock prints. He was the only Japanese artist to be listed among the 1999 Life magazine’s “One Hundred Most Important Events and People of the Past 1000 Years.” His works have been highly influential throughout the world—Impressionists such as Vincent van Gogh, the glass artist Émile Gallé, the composer Claude Debussy, and even the logo of Quiksilver, Inc. have all been inspired by his art.
This iPad e-book Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji presents high-quality images of forty-six prints, complete with a brief explanation for each. It will let you immerse yourself in Hokusai’s world of art, experience a bygone era that was not contaminated by modernity, and re-discover Hokusai’s genius.
