Bluebells and Dragonfly
Katsushika Hokusai - October 31, 1760 (exact date questionable) May 10, 1849 was born to an artisan family in Edo, now known as Tokyo, Japan. He became an apprentice to a woodcarver at age 14 and at 18 was accepted into the studio of Katsukawa Shunshō, head of the Katsukawa school. It was here where he mastered the art of Ukiyo-e, a popular style of woodblock printing and started developing his own line of prints. Later in life Hokusai experimented with other styles of painting and gained fame for his unique works featuring landscapes and nature. Bluebells and Dragonfly was produced between 1834 and his death in 1849 and is one of the many woodblock prints which may have influenced the Art Nouveau movement and impressionists such as Van Gogh, Gauguin and Klimt.
