View List

Description: 36 Views of Mt. Fuji is an extremely well-known series. What started as 36 works later grew to include a total of 46 images, containing some of the most recognizable works Hokusai ever designed.

This print depicts a ferry on the Sumida River at dusk. In front of the ferry, a large rough wave is drawn in beautiful indigo lines. Mt. Fuji at the foot of Ryogoku Bridge on the other side of the river is expressed as a silhouette in the backlight of the setting sun, and the time of gradual loss of color as the sun sets. It is a fantastic landscape with a somewhat melancholy atmosphere.

This particular print is a post-war reproduction by the Takamizawa Company.
