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

5 editions published between 1968 and 1999 in English and held by 336 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."--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. It attempts to show how he combined figures and landscape, represented three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface, and used the techniques of illusionism or adjusted reality for greater visual or emotional effect

Hokusai by Edmond de Goncourt( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and French and held by 83 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 civilisation, 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. Considered a Ukiyo-e master even during his lifetime, Hokusai fascinates us with the variety and the significance of his work which spanned almost ninety years and is presented here in all its breadth and diversity
