Hokusai Tin - Great Wave 


This Art Box is perfect for the storage of tea. Small gifts leave a big impact - make someone happy!
 
  • Height 11cm
  • This lovely tin features Katsushika Hokusai famous painting The Great Wave. 

The image depicts an enormous wave threatening three boats off the coast of the town of Kanagawa (the present-day city of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture) while Mount Fuji rises in the background. While sometimes assumed to be a tsunami, the wave is more likely to be a large rogue wave. As in many of the prints in the series, it depicts the area around Mount Fuji under particular conditions, and the mountain itself appears in the background. Throughout the series are dramatic uses of Berlin blue pigment



Katsushika Hokusai

Born in 1760 in today’s city of Tokyo. Katsushika Hokusai started an apprenticeship as wood-carver at the age of 15. He travelled through Japan, frequently changing his teachers and schools and also his name. During his lifetime of almost 90 years, Hokusai used about 30 different names, such as Gakyojin that can be translated as “crazy about painting”. The series “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji” became his most popular work. It includes the famous “Great Wave off Kanagawa”.

In his Homeland Japan, Hokusai’s work was rather considered as “everyday graphics”, whereas in Europe his art contributed to Japonism, inspired artists like Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt and also influenced Art Nouveau.
