Hokusai Katsushika,
"Mt. Fuji Between the Waves off the Coast of Kanagawa; One of 36 views of Mt. Fuji"

     The waves off the coast of Kanagawa, appearing like surging billows on the ocean, move in a frenzied manner just like Hokusai's passionate character. The scene full of violent motions, the contrast between the deep blue and white, the novelty of the idea--this picture is considered the masterpiece of Hokusai. In this his skillful art is perfectly expressed.
