Woodblock print (reprint) - Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) - 'A View of Mount Fuji Across Lake Suwa' from the series "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji" - Reprint - Late 20th century

Katsushika Hokusai has become one of the most influential artists of Japan, inspiring such famous painters as Van Gogh etc.. When Hokusai was 70 years old and at the peak of his career, he began work on a series of woodblock prints. These prints became known as Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji.

Lake Suwa is about 120 miles west of Edo, in Shinano Province (present-day Nagano Prefecture). On the left side of the print, directly under Mount Fuji, Takashima Castle stands on a promontory jutting out into the lake. Behind it, nestled in the trees, are the rooftops of Lower Suwa village, one of two main villages that developed around the lake.
