Born in Japan in 1760, he is recognised as one of the great masters of the Ukiyo-e School, which can be translated as ‘pictures of the floating world’. Initially he trained under the artist Shunsho and was known as a designer and book illustrator but he became a legend in his own lifetime with his popular series of woodblock prints ‘36 views of Mount Fuji’ of which the ‘Great Wave of Kanagawa’ is the most famous. Hokusai’s work is characterised by the use of dramatic settings, a strong sense of atmosphere and a compositional ingenuity which was later to strongly influence the Impressionist artists in France. He died in 1849.
