Art on Tuesday: Mount Fuji From Gotenyama

hokusai

This woodblock print was made by Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), probably the best known Japanese artist ever. It shows Mount Fuji From Gotenyama on the Tôkaidô Road at Shinagawa 東海道品川御殿山ノ不二, painted around 1830-1834. The picture is one of the series: Thirty Six Views of Mt. Fuji. For detailed information visit also the website of the British Museum, where you can explore many of his works.

  1. The 36 Views and the 54 Stops on the Tokkaido are two of the very best series of works ever done, in my humble opinion. I will check the info at the British Museum website.

    Thanks for reminding me of my love of Hokusai’s work.
