E - Hokusai, Katsushika

Katshusika Hokusai (1760-1849) is perhaps the most famous of Japanese Woodblock artists of the Edo period and indeed of any period. His draughtsmanship is superb as can be seen in all his work, especially his Manga Sketchbooks.Along with Hiroshige he had a huge influence on Western Art through Manet, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec and most of the Impressionists. His `Great Wave` has become one of the most iconic images in the world. He was hugely prolific and over artistic career that spanned seventy years he created a wonderful and wide range of works; landscapes, kabuki actors, birds, flowers, animals, erotic (shunga) and contemporary life captured in his Manga Sketchbooks.
