Big Wave – Katsushika Hokusai – Art Print

Big Wave – Katsushika Hokusai – Art Print. Katsushika Hokusai was a Japanese artist and printmaker of the Edo period who specialised in Ukiyo-e, a genre of Japanese art and a collaborative system of printing where the artist, carver, printer, and publisher engaged in division of labour. Hokusai is best known as the author of the woodblock print series ‘Thirty-six view of Mount Fuji’ which included ‘Big Wave’. For this print Hokusai depicted the mountain in the left-hand corner accompanied by some greeny which balances out the roaring wave on the right.


Monte Carlo 300gsm watercolour paper. This premium paper made on a traditional cylinder mould machine by St Cuthbert’s Mill in Somerset where they have been making fine papers on the same site since the 1700’s. They are the only commercial paper mill in England to still use this paper-making process. Mould made paper combines the consistent quality of machine made papers, but with the individual character of handmade papers. A specialist coater adds an ink receptive coating layer, allowing us to print perfectly to conservation standards.
