Hokusai: Landscapes boxed notecard set (20 cards)
Beautiful notecard set featuring four remarkable Hokusai´s prints, including the Great Wave. The four images reproduced on these notecards come from three series he produced late in life: one each from Remarkable Views of Bridges in Various Provinces and A Tour of Waterfalls in Various Provinces, and two from Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, perhaps his best-known work.
Born in Edo, Japan, Katsushika Hokusai passionately pursued art for most of his life and by the time of his death at age eighty-nine was an artist of great renown. And yet his long life was not enough—with each decade he believed his communion with nature grew and his art took on greater spirituality.
Contains five each of the following notecards from The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston:
· The Hanging-cloud Bridge at Mount Gyōdō near Ashikaga, c. 1834
· The Falling Mist Waterfall at Mount Kurokami in Shimotsuke Province, c. 1832
· Hakone Lake in Sagami Province, c. 1830–31
· Under the Wave off Kanagawa, also known as the Great Wave, c. 1830–31
