Hokusai the Japanese painter and printmaker




















"The Great Wave of Kanagawa" is the most famous of Hokusai prints and has been studied by many art critics and art lovers but what I want to stress is the left "Beauty with Umbrella beneath a Willow Tree" that was painted on silk. If you take a look at Van Gogh's Père Tanguy you will have a better understanding of what he is depicting in the background.

A snapshot of a larger piece of work. I think I'm getting that right.

Have a great day Ana. :)
