Fuji at Sea (Hokusai's Reverse Wave) by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Fuji at Sea (Hokusai's Reverse Wave)
Series; One Hundred Views of Mt. Fuji

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.

Fuji at Sea (Hokusai's Reverse Wave) - Spectacular image of an enormous wave peaking at right in a spray of white foam, a flock of birds scattering in flight overhead. The snow-capped peak of Mt. Fuji is seen in the distance, framed by the raging sea. An incredible Hokusai design, beautifully colored. This reprints includes dark metallic gold pigment on the background, an unusual detail.
