More cultural and artistic informations about the painter

* * *

Main works :

Thirty six views of the Mount Fuji.

Artistic movements :

Artist of the ukiyo-e (narrative painting of the Edo period).

Inspiration, influence :

Katsukawa Shunsho, his teacher, but also the western art (brought in Nagasaki by the Dutch people) and particularly the contribution of the perspective.

His contemporaries :

His influence on the European artists is immense : Gauguin, Monet, Sisley. The compositions of the "The Old Man Mad About Drawing" (nickname of Hokusai) profoundly marked their visual universes.

To keep in mind :

One of the greatest illustrators. The simplicity of his work, his formal beauty, make him an iconic figure of the painting.

To go further :

In 2015, a manga, "Miss Hokusai", tells the collaboration of Hokusaï and one of his daughters, O-Ei, who helped him in his work.
