The Great Wave Off Kanagawa
Katsushika Hokusai (October, 1760-April 18, 1849) was a Japanese painter and printmaker from the Edo Period. He is most famous for his series of prints called "Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji" (produced during the period 1826-1833). One of these views, "The Great Wave Off Kanagawa," has become a modern-day icon. Hokusai's seemingly timeless images are almost 200 years old.

Hokusai was born in Edo (now called Tokyo), Japan. In 1778, he was apprenticed at the art studio of Katsukawa Shunsho. During his life, Hokusai produced tens of thousands of prints, paintings, and illustrations. Hokusai's images were usually taken from the Japanese countryside, its people and its legends.

Hokusai's prints influenced many western artists, including Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec.
