The Hokusai sketch-books : selections from the Manga by Hokusai Katsushika( Book )

29 editions published between 1958 and 1989 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between the years 1814 and 1878 there was published in Japan a series of woodblock-printed volumes entitled "Hokusai manga, ' or 'Hokusai's sketches from life, ' which was destined to be one of the most popular art publications ever issued anywhere in the world. With its rich tapestry of life as it was lived in the boisterous Tokyo of the day and its magical evocation of the beauties of the Japanese countryside, it was an immediate best-seller in Japan, and then, upon the West's discovery of Japanese art, went on to win the hearts of people everywhere"--Jacket flap
Hokusai, One hundred poets by Peter Morse( Book )

8 editions published between 1989 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This lavishly illustrated, oversized (17" x 10") book brings together the last major print series of the celebrated Japanese artist Hokusai (1760-1849) and the Japanese poetry that inspired these beautiful prints. Whether showing semi-nude women abalone divers struggling with their catch while a male crew of shriveled old salts leers from a nearby boat, or the carefree rapture of a leisurely group of men and women observing cherry blossoms at their peak, Hokusai captures, with drama and delicacy, sublime and ridiculous states. The artist's simplicity, though deceptive, is also remarkable: he illustrates a poem about a lovers' seaside tryst with a magnificently imposing yet unadorned sailing vessel, its small window offering a coy glimpse of the fortunate couple inside. Each of the 111 color prints (as well as 41 black-and-white sketches of projected prints apparently never completed) is accompanied by the poem, in Japanese and English, a biographical note on the poet and by Peter Morse's comments on literary and artistic intention and execution."

Hokusai : genius of the Japanese Ukiyo-e by Seiji Nagata( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hokusai is perhaps the Asian artist best known in the West. His influence has extended from the Impressionists to later modern art and even to commercial design. A few of his works are so frequently reproduced that they are almost as familiar as the face of the Mona Lisa. Yet the "Great Wave" and the "Red Fuji" from the Thirty-six views of Mt. Fuji represent only a tiny fraction of Hokusai's output. The pages of the Sketches, with their teeming humanity and their boundless interest in the details of everyday life, give only a small idea of his true scope. Hokusai's life was characterized by a prodigious energy and productivity that continued to the end of his ninth decade; his output comprises a correspondingly broad variety of genres and styles. Despite this, it is still not sufficiently realized just how great is the range, and how many masterpieces it includes." "The aim of this work is to present a more balanced picture of Hokusai's achievement, a selection ranging over the whole oeuvre that will give some idea of the strength, the delicacy, and the fabulous inventive powers of this truly universal genius of the ukiyo-e."--Jacket

Over a century and a half after his death, Katsushika Hokusai is still one of Japan's most popular and influential artists. This handy volume presents the wide range of Hokusai's aristic production in terms of one of his most remarkable characteristics: his intellectual ingenuity.

Hokusai by Edmond de Goncourt( )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Katsushika Hokusai is without a doubt the most famous Japanese artist known in the Western world since the middle of the nineteenth century. Reflecting the artistic expression of an isolated civilization, the works of Hokusai, one of the first Japanese artists to emerge in Europe, greatly influenced Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters, such as Vincent van Gogh. Hokusai fascinates with the variety and the significance of his work which spanned almost ninety years

The thirty-six views of Mount Fuji by Hokusai Katsushika( Book )

13 editions published in 1966 in English and Japanese and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Last year the East-West Center Press had the pleasure of publishing Hiroshige's The Fifty-three Stages of the Tokaido. That volume was so well received that this year the Press presents this companion volume of forty-six prints by Hokusai. By creating the landscape print, Hokusai breathed new life into the art. He became one of the greatest innovators of that field. Hokusai and Hiroshige are ranked among Japan's gifted and certainly most popular artists, and both made their marks with sets of prints depicting the Japanese landscape. Hokusai chose Mount Fuji as his theme, and Hiroshige chose the famous Tokaido. The volumes reproducing these two beautiful sets of woodblock prints comprise the highest achievement of the art of ukiyo-e. They are available separately or as a set, handsomely boxed. The historian or student of art will find them not only valuable to own, but also a sheer delight to read." -- Publisher's description
