Japan's most celebrated landscape artist of the 19th century, Katsushika Hokusai produced woodblock prints and paintings that capture the unique beauty of the island nation. Sailing ships, shoji gates, cherry blossoms, village scenes, Mount Fuji and even tsunamis—Japan's gorgeous, sometimes violent landscape is depicted in powerful, muted colors and rich calligraphic details.
I've always found Mount Fuji to be a magnificent-looking mountain. In my opinion no one has captured it quite as elegantly as Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. This iconic artwork instantly inspires me.
