About Hokusai Porcelain Plate - Great Wave Off Kanagawa (1829-1832)

This elegant Goebel Hokusai Porcelain Plate displays the masterwork woodblock print "The Great Wave Off Kanagawa" by the Ukiyo-e Edo period artist Katsushika Hokusai. The Great Wave Off Kanagawa is the first print from the series "Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji". 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. This series of prints is characterized by the significant use of Prussian blue, a new color fashionable in the 1830s, and by the occasional use of Western techniques for representing perspective. Hokusai's Ukiyo-e (translates to "Pictures of the fleeting world") prints reflect scenes of landscapes, and individuals engaging in everyday life activities and leisure.

    Hokusai was a Japanese artist, who was actually known by at least 30 different names throughout his lifetime. This was relatively common in his culture, although his names in particular directly related to his artistic production and style. He is most notable for his Ukiyo-e woodblock prints and extended his cultural reach worldwide in his time. Although he studied art since a very young age, his greatest work occurred after the age of 60. He is famous for his woodblock print series Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, which consists of 46 prints. This series included The Great Wave print, which earned him fame both in Japan and overseas. His work influenced 19th century Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, and even the larger Impressionist movement. Not only this, but he could also be considered the “founding father” of the modern Manga movement, which is still a vibrant and healthy genre to this day.
