Hokusai Katsushika

It's rare to see from the people in that era, Hokusai was someone like didn't drink any alcohol but preferred tea, doesn't have any interests in food but liked Yuzu (a citron).

Hokusai Katsushika is a Ukiyo-e print artist from the latter part of the Edo period in Japan. His masterpieces are 'Fugaku Sanju-rokkei (Thirty-Six Views of Mt Fuji)' and 'Hokusai Manga'. He is one of the famous artist in the world.

Since Paris Expo in 1867, 'Japonisme' was broken out. His name value was then spread to world at once. A lot of ukiyoe were introduced at this Expo, their dynamic structure and vivid colors were not available for European paintings at the time, it gave a big impact for the European artists and it was the opportunity to create Impressions.

Vincent Willem van Gogh (1853-1890) and Edgar Degas (1834-1917) and so on were affected by Hokusai. In 1999, Hokusai was the only Japanese selected by 'LIFE', the American magazine as 'Life's 100 most important people of the second millennium'.

In Japan, we show our praise for his great work, 'Sumida Hokusai Museum' was opened in Sumida district in Tokyo and they have many of his rare collection there.
