Product Information

Our wave image is inspired by The Great Wave, a Japanese woodblock print by Hokusai (1760-1849) from a series of works entitled, Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji. Hokusai Katsushika was a prolific artist and sensational character influenced by Dutch and French pastoral landscape painters. (Hokusai had discovered copies of European etchings on wrapping papers used to smuggle goods into Japan during the Shogun period, a time when Western influences were forbidden). In turn, Impressionist painters of the late 1800's, Van Gogh included, were influenced by Hokusai's prints. A man of incredible energy, Hokusai produced over 3000 works of art, the most accomplished series in his seventies and eighties, moved 93 times in his life and changed his artistic name more than 30 times. He is best known for being the first to bring the human story into Japanese art.
