This volume includes full-color reproductions of drawings and woodblock prints by Katsushika Hokusai, one of Japan's most revered artists. His landscapes - including the famous views of Mount Fuji - portraits of lovers and kabuki actors, nature and animal illustrations, as well as scenes of daily life in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Japan reveal the artist's genius for rendering a wide variety of subjects. Author Matthi Forrer discusses Hokusai's life and lasting popularity while placing his work within the context of Japanese society and the work of his contemporaries.
