Japanese Wave Paintings

Kanagawa oki nami ura (The great wave off shore of Kanagawa) Katsushika, Hokusai Created / Published [between 1826 and printed later] 1 print : woodcut, color. Print shows a huge wave bearing down on boats with a view of Mount Fuji in the background.

Hokusai (1760 – 1849) has been long regarded as Japan's most famous artist, especially for his landscapes of Mount Fuji. His most famous works were all produced when he was in his 70s.

Japanese woodblock print - The Great Wave off Kanagawa, also known as The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai.

A painting that is from generations ago yet is probably one of the most recognizable pieces of artwork not to mention it is also an emoji. This notorious Japanese masterpiece of the waves are a wonderful representation of nature in one of its rawest forms. The waves are monstrous and full of power and mystique. ”Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” woodblock print by KATSUSHIKA Hokusai (1760-1849), Japan 葛飾北斎 富嶽三十六景

”Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” woodblock print by KATSUSHIKA Hokusai Japan 葛飾北斎 富嶽三十六景 I like how he used a variety of color in his artwork to create a masterpiece that is so refined.
