|Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849)
Hokusai was a painter and wood engraver, born in Edo (now Tokyo).
He produced illustrations and color prints that drew their inspiration from the traditions, legends, and lives of the Japanese people. The free curved lines characteristic of his style gradually developed into a series of spirals that imparted the utmost freedom and grace to his work. His prints were imported to Paris in the mid-19th century and enthusiastically collected by impressionist artists.
