Mt. Fuji Between the Waves off the Coast of Kanagawa--One of 36 views of Mt. Fuji.

The waves off the coast of Kanagawa, appearing like surging billows on the ocean, move in a frenzied manner just like Hokusai's passionate character.

The scene full of violent motions, the contrast between the deep blue and white, the novelty of the idea--this picture is considered one of the master pieces of Hokusai. In this, his skillful art is perfectly expressed.

Size: 15 1/2" x 10 1/4". $150.00 (S&H: $10.00). Item#: WBU-240. Delivery: 2-3 weeks.

Gaifu Kaisei Mt. Fuji on a fine breezy day, one of 36 views of Mt. Fuji.

One of the master pieces of Hokusai, known as Akafuji or Red Fuji. Most striking are the reddish brown of the mountain, and the dark green skirts against the blue sky with trailing alto strata. A piece that has given a profound influence on Western artists.

Size: 15 1/2" x 10 1/4". $150.00 (S&H: $10.00). Item#: WBU-241. Delivery: 2-3 weeks.
