Katsushika Hokusai

Here are some beautiful Japanese prints by the Edo-period artist, Katsushika Hokusai… I particularly love the waterfall.

I really enjoy finding places where the Japanese aesthetic has crept into the Western world. Stay tuned for some images of James Abbott McNeill Whistler’s oils. He is one of my favorite 19th century painters, and his work was largely influenced by his time spent in Japan.

    Did you know that under Katsushika Hokusai’s name, he painted several pieces that made him forever famous in Japan. These works include Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji and The Great Wave off Kanagawa. During this time he also began to direct his work towards detailed images of single flowers and birds.
