About the book:

Hokusai was one of the great masters of the Japanese woodblock print. His exquisite compositions and dynamic use of colour set him apart from other printmakers, and his unequalled genius influenced both Japanese and a whole generation of Western artists. This book reproduces the artist's finest works in plates that convey the full variety of his invention, each of which is provided with an informative commentary. In his introduction, Hokusai expert Matthi Forrer traces the artist's career and defines his place in relation to his contemporaries and to the history of Japanese art. Examining all genres of the artist's prolific output - including images of city life, maritime scenes, landscapes, views of Mount Fuji, bird and flower illustrations, literary scenes, waterfalls and bridges - "Hokusai: Prints and Drawings" provides a detailed account of the artist's genius.
