From Curator Socks: The Great Wave Off Kanagawa, also known as The Great Wave, is Hokusai’s most famous work of the woodblock print series “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji”, and many of its originals hang in various Western Museums and collections.
The image depicts a rogue wave endangering three boats off the coast of Kanagawa with Mount Fuji rising in the background. The indigo blue (Prussian blue) so recognizable in Hokusai’s landscapes, was used as the foundation in our piece honoring the most recognizable work of Japanese art in the world.
Katsushika Hokusai created “The Great Wave” in 1829-33. Color Woodblock, 25.7 × 37.8 cm. Housed in numerous locations.
