KATSUSHIKA HOKUSAI, who also used the names Shunro, Sori, Kako, Taito, Gakyojin, Iitsu, and Manji was born October 1760, and died May 10, 1849, was a Japanese master artist and printmaker of the ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world) school. His early works represent the full spectrum of ukiyo’e art, including single-sheet prints of landscapes and actors, hand paintings, and surimono (printed things), such as greetings and announcements. Later he concentrated on the classical themes of the samurai and Chinese subjects. His famous print series “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji,” published between 1826 and 1833, marked the summit in the history of the Japanese landscape print.
