Hokusai (1760-1849) was an extraordinarily prolific Japanese master artist and printmaker of the ukiyo-e ('pictures of the floating world') school. More than 150 years after his death, his legacy remains as important as any Western painter's. Hokusai's work inspired a roll-call of great artists including Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Gauguin, Manet, Degas and Klimt as well as craftsmen and architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright. This book features six meticulously crafted pop-ups of his most famous works: The Great Wave ; Chrysanthemums ; The Bridge ; Waterfall ; Phoenix ; and Sudden Gust of Wind.
