Series; Thirty-six Views of Fuji

Hokusai and the Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji - In Japan, Mt. Fuji is a sacred place and a symbol of the country itself. Rising majestically near the center of Japan, Fuji dominates the landscape and the Japanese national identity. At the age of sixty-nine, the great Hokusai began what would become the most famous landscape print series of ukiyo-e, his incredible Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji.

Originally intended to comprise thirty-six prints, the publisher added an additional ten images, bringing the series total to forty-six woodblocks. Originally published around 1830, Hokusai's bold compositions capture the strength, beauty, and symbolism of Mt. Fuji in rain and snow, at sunrise and dusk, and from a variety of vantage points. The series includes some of Hokusai's greatest masterpieces. These fantastic images portray the strength and majesty of nature, leading the viewer to contemplate man's place in relation to the natural world. A truly magnificent series, Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji justly remains Hokusai's most famous and highly regarded work.

Kato Institute Commemorative Edition - These handsome reprints of Hokusai's famous "Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji" were published in 1960 by the Kato Institute of Woodcut Prints in Tokyo to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Hokusai's birth. These full-scale reprints were based on the finest originals available, accurately reproducing the beautiful nuances of color and line work in Hokusai's masterful series. A wonderful choice to collect or display, these classic and timeless images celebrate Hokusai's lasting contribution to the art of ukiyo-e.

Fuji Seen from the Senju Pleasure Quarters - A scene of samurais marching in procession, carrying their guns wrapped in brown cloth. The snow-covered Fuji in the background and the earthy colors dominating the print suggest a late autumn scene. A nice print with a strong composition and perspective.
