Hokusai Great Wave Journal from The Met Museum


This ingenious composition is one of the most recognized in the history of art-and a highlight of The Met collection. Famous for landscape views, Katsushika Hokusai (Japanese, 1760-1849) used a shift in perspective to make Mount Fuji, Japan’s grandest mountain, appear dwarf-like under a cresting wave in this imagined seascape. You’ll savor Hokusai’s brilliant point of view every time you open this journal’s pages.
