Overview

His Great Wave off Kanagawa is the most famous work in East Asian art. Hokusai, a self-confessed eccentric and obsessive, created with his pictures of the floating world a veritable encyclopedia of Japanese daily life and thus became a major source for Europeans seeking to understand the art and culture of Japan.
