The Great Wave off Kanagawa


In the early part of the nineteenth century, the stately and serene ukiyo-e movement of Japan gave way to a vibrant artistic trend (y?ga) inspired by Western painting. In the interval between these two movements, The Great Wave off Kanagawa was created by Katsushika Hokusai, who was influenced both by the prevailing artistic trends in Japan and the Western style of painting.

The Great Wave off Kanagawa is one of Hokusai’s most well-known prints, yet it is part of a series called ’36 Views of Mount Fuji’ that has remained popular for over 150 years. ’36 Visions’ consists of landscape paintings depicting views of Mount Fuji from different locations and at different times. The Great Wave off Kanagawa, or simply ‘The Great Wave,’ is often considered the most iconic example from Hokusai’s ’36 Views’ series.
