Hokusai - The thirty-six views of Mount Fuji
The complete 36 views of Mount Fuji, including the ten additional prints commissioned by the Hokusai publisher following the success of this series.
"If only the heavens could give me another ten years... If only the heavens could give me another five years, I would become a great artist. "In making these vows at the end of his life, Hokusai (1760-1849), now considered the most famous artist of his time, expresses his eternal quest for perfection.
The success of these prints is considerable and popularizes the landscape genre. From then on, Hokusai's publisher ordered ten new plates from him, Le Fuji seen from the other side. A complete set of forty-six prints in total is therefore reproduced in this box set, accompanied by an explanatory booklet describing each of the prints from the most famous suite of the Japanese great master.
