Waterfalls by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Original Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Print
Waterfalls
Series; Hokusai Manga, Volume 13
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

The Hokusai Manga - Hokusai first conceived of his "Manga" series in 1812 on a trip to the Nagoya area. Hokusai chose the title "Manga," meaning "random sketches," to encompass his wide-ranging choice of subjects, which included people, mythology, landscapes, architecture, birds, animals, flowers and plants, ghosts, and deities. Most designs include multiple small images on each page. The complete set of Manga books was released in a total of 15 volumes over 64 years, with some volumes published posthumously. These lively drawings express Hokusai's wonderful ability to capture human gestures and personalities, often with comic overtones, and create memorable landscapes and nature scenes. These terrific woodblocks offer a great opportunity to purchase a classic Hokusai from his famous manga series at an affordable price. The prints in this group are from a later edition.
