Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was one of the most prolific Japanese artists of the late Edo period (1615-1868). Over a career spanning more than seven decades, he produced as many as thirty thousand works, including paintings, drawings and book illustrations. He is best known today as a designer of ukiyo-e woodblock prints, and was one of the early leaders in the field of landscape prints.
The Honolulu Museum of Art holds a collection of over five hundred prints by Hokusai, one of the finest collections of its type. It includes a complete set of his renowned series, Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, a monumental accomplishment, which took many years to complete. The series was so successful that Hokusai continued it beyond the planned thirty-six views, for a total of forty-six prints.
