Under the Wave off Kanagawa (Kanagawa oki nami ura), also known as The Great Wave, from the series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (Fugaku sanjūrokkei)

The Great Wave - replicated many times over and I am sure you have seen a variation of it in the streets of Singapore.

The breathtaking composition of this woodblock print, said to have inspired Debussy’s La Mer (The Sea) and Rilke’s Der Berg (The Mountain), ensures its reputation as an icon of world art. Hokusai cleverly play...ed with perspective to make Japan’s grandest mountain appear as a small triangular mound within the hollow of the cresting wave. The artist became famous for his landscapes created using a palette of indigo and imported Prussian blue. Catch the final screening of Miss Hokusai this weekend - a animation about the relationship between Katsushika Hokusai – the 19th-century artist famous for The Great Wave – and his daughter.
