The Great Wave off Kanagawa - Katsushika Hokusai

Curator's notes:

The Great Wave off Kanagawa is a woodblock print by the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. It is considered one of the most iconic and recognizable works of Japanese art, and is part of the series "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji." The print depicts a large wave towering over boats and sailors, with Mount Fuji in the background.

The Great Wave is known for its dynamic composition, with the wave itself being the focal point. The wave's shape and the lines used to create it give the impression of movement and power, while the small boats and figures in the foreground provide a sense of scale and vulnerability. The colors used in the print are mostly blue and white, which adds to the sense of depth and movement. The Great Wave off Kanagawa is considered to be one of the most famous and widely reproduced images of Japan and Hokusai's work.


    Choose from a range of sizes, with the smallest size being comparable to an A4 sheet, and the largest size being comparable to an A2. Each size is meticulously scaled to match the original Japanese woodblock print.
