A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction
The Hokusai Manga - Hokusai first conceived of his Manga series in 1812 on a trip to the Kyoto area. Hokusai personally chose the title Manga, meaning "sketches from life," because he wished to depict an unlimited range of scenes, objects, and people, freely and at random, allowing his incomparable brush to lead him where it would. The complete set of Manga books was released in a total of 15 volumes over 64 years, with some volumes published posthumously. These prints express his wonderful ability to capture human gestures and personalities, often with comic overtones, and create memorable landscapes and nature scenes. These terrific woodblocks offer a great opportunity to purchase a classic Hokusai from his famous manga series at an affordable price.
