The Great Wave of Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai
The Great Wave of Kanagawa, from the Series "36 Views of Mt. Fuji" ("Fugaku Sanjuokkei") by Katsushika Hokusai is a Framed Giclee Print expertly set in a CHELSEA Black frame with Crisp - Bright White matting. Katsushika Hokusai (1760- 1849) dominated Japanese Ukiyo-e woodblock printing, meaning pictures of the floating world, or everyday life. Hokusai, who changed his name each time he changed artistic styles, is best known for his woodblock print series Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, which includes the iconic The Great Wave Off Kanagawa. He was extraordinarily prolific between 1796 and 1820, producing an estimated 30,000 book illustrations and color prints inspired by Japanese traditions, legends and daily life. Hokusai created his most important works after age 60, in which Mount Fuji was often a spiritually significant element. His art enormously impacted Impressionists, including Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. This exceptional art print is created using a sophisticated printing process known as giclee, from the French word to spray. Using the highest levels of precision available, the process delivers a fine stream of ink to saturate the fibers of the watercolor paper, resulting in pure, rich color and remarkable detail. Museums and galleries around the world favor giclee prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface resulting in vivid, pure color and exceptional detail. An acrylic coating protects the stunning print from dust, moisture and fading. Handcrafted in the USA. Mounting hardware is included.
