The Ukiyo-e woodblock print by the Japanese 19th century artist (published around 1830) is the first in his famous series of prints called 'Thirty six views of Mount Fuji' which, as per historian Richard Lane is " a monumental print-series, one work- that made Hokusai's name both in Japan and abroad"
Katsushika Hokusai was a Japanese artist, Ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period.
