Description: This print is included in a set of 50 prints called "Ukiyo Ekagami," a collection of various artists and genres, which was probably a reproduction in the pre-war period.

It is one of the most famous prints from Hokusai’s celebrated Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series, published c. 1830–1832.

This print is sometimes known as the “Black Fuji” and shows a severe and almost menacing atmosphere given by the contrast of the snowy peak and the black base of the mountain. This base has been split by bolt lighting which is here represented by Hokusai using almost abstract zigzag lines.

A more serene feeling is in the background where the upper portion of the sky uses a gradation of Prussian blue and some clouds with a smoky aspect float behind the peak.

There are a few traces of glue removal on the backside.
