Hokusai’s Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji
Ends in 15 days
The Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji by Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) was published around 1831 by the prominent printer and publishe Eijudō Nishimura. The series gained popularity backed by the thriving veneration of Mount Fuji at the time, depicting the mountain from various locations and with illustrations of cultures and customs of the localities. It was originally published as a set of 36 prints, but 10 more designs were added, encouraged by the immense success it enjoyed. This is undoubtedly the most prominent work of Hokusai, highly acclaimed worldwide for the ingenious compositions and impressive color rendering, notably of Berlin Blue. The series includes famous compositions such as the Great Wave off Kanagawa, the South Wind, Clear Sky, and the Rainstorm Beneath the Summit. The complete set of 46 prints are on display, showcasing Hokusai’s genius in his extraordinary depictions of the revered mountain that helped him to establish the genre of ukiyoe landscapes in its own right.
