Asian art   •   Katsushika Hokusai @ Wikipedia

Katsushika Hokusai was born in 1760 in Edo, today's Sumida district in Tokyo. He is considered the most famous artist of Japan. His best known work is the color woodcut "The Great Wave before Kanagawa" (1830) from the cycle "36 Views of Mount Fuji" (1829-1833). His works are assigned to the genre Ukiyo-e. It means "images of the flowing world", a soulful, interconnected world in its eternal cycle of becoming and passing away. Hokusai drew, painted and printed nature and landscape paintings, portraits, everyday scenes and erotic depictions. The term "manga" goes back to him. So he described his sketchbooks with the everyday scenes from the Edo period.

Katsushika Hokusai gave himself over 30 different stage names throughout his life. Between 1834 and 1849 he signed his works with "Gakyo-rojin", Japanese for "old man crazy after painting".

"At the age of 100 I will have achieved an excellent rank, and at 110 every point, every line will have a life of their own, I just hope some people get so old to recognize the truthfulness of my words."

Even though he was not granted the 110 years of his life, the prolific and grandiose artist left behind more than 30,000 works. The magic of his visually stunning and subtle works is still unbroken until today. © Meisterdrucke
