The Great Wave at Kanagawa
The Great Wave at Kanagawa by Hokusai masterfully recreated
Few works of art are more instantly recognizable than Katsushika Hokusai's The Great Wave at Kanagawa, a woodblock print that's become famous the world over.
Published sometime between 1829 and 1833, this masterwork depicts a massive 40-foot-tall wave on the verge of crushing three fishing boats. With the rowers clinging to their oars, the print is often seen as a metaphor for how the artist felt about Japan, an island surrounded by an overwhelming ocean. To drive home the point, Mount Fuji, that great icon of Japan, looms in the background.
Hokusai's fellow artists have long admired the work. Vincent van Gogh said the work has a terrifying emotional impact, in addition to praising the skill of its artistry. The image also inspired Claude Debussy to write his orchestral work "La mer."
Stauer now offers you the chance to make this internationally iconic work the star of your own private collection.
