The Great Wave
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 started painting at the age of 6, 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. This famous print was published sometime between 1829 and 1833 and was Hokusai's first print in the Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series. It is Hokusai's most famous work, and one of the most recognizable works of Japanese art in the world.
