Katsushika Hokusai ist ohne Zweifel der seit der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts im Westen berühmteste Künstler Japans. Die Werke Hokusais spiegeln die künstlerischen Ausdrucksformen einer isolierten Kultur wider. Gleichzeitig war er einer der ersten japanischen Künstler, der in Europa Bekanntheit erlangte und großen Einfluss auf impressionistische und postimpressionistische Maler wie etwa Vincent van Gogh ausübte. Hokusai galt schon zu seinen Lebzeiten als ein Meister der Kunst des Ukiyo-e. Er fasziniert uns noch heute mit der Vielfalt und Bedeutung seines in diesem Buch in seiner gesamten abwechslungsreichen Breite präsentierten, fast neunzig Jahre umfassenden Werkes.

Without a doubt, Katsushika Hokusai is the most famous Japanese artist since the middle of the nineteenth century whose art is known to the Western world. Reflecting the artistic expression of an isolated civilisation, the works of Hokusai - one of the first Japanese artists to emerge in Europe - greatly influenced the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters, such as Vincent van Gogh. Considered during his life as a living Ukiyo-e master, Hokusai fascinates us with the variety and the significance of his work, which spanned almost ninety years and is presented here in all its breadth and diversity.

This book contains 262 high-quality annotated reproductions with details of prints and drawings by Katsushika Hokusai. Some people say that the "devil's in the details" and generally, they are right. Looking out for the small details in one picture is a good practice, since in most of the cases small but ultimately important details is the heart of a great author's idea. This title aims to help you see the details of his works; his secrets are not in his words, they are in his works. Look close up at Hokusai’s prints and drawings, and that tell you what you cannot see but need to know and that should be enough. Katsushika Hokusai was a brilliant artist, ukiyo-e painter and print maker, best known for his wood block print series Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji. Hokusai’s artistic influence has stretched to have affected the Art Nouveau style in Europe, including Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Hermann Obrist, all of whom have themes similar to Hokusai’s.

Katsushika Hokusai is one of the most famous names in Japanese art, and the epitome of the later Ukiyo-e ('floating world') school. He also is one of the great draftsmen of the world. With his inimitable sense of humor Hokusai best describes himself: “From the age of 6 I had a mania for drawing the shapes of things. When I was 50 I had published a universe of designs. But all I have done before the age of 70 is not worth bothering with. At 75 I'll have learned something of the pattern of nature, of animals, of plants, of trees, birds, fish and insects. When I am 80 you will see real progress. At 90 I shall have cut my way deeply into the mystery of life itself. At 100, I shall be a marvellous artist. At 110, everything I create; a dot, a line, will jump to life as never before. To all of you who are going to live as long as I do, I promise to keep my word. I am writing this in my old age. I used to call myself Hokusai, but today I sign my self 'The Old Man Mad About Drawing.” Hokusai Katsushika

Hokusai began drawing at the age of six, and by 18 he had been accepted into the Katsukawa Shunsho School. He had a long career, but he produced most of his important work after age 60. The largest of Hokusai's works is the 15-volume collection Hokusai Manga, a book crammed with nearly 4,000 sketches. The aged artist lost everything in a fire at his lodgings in 1839 and devoted the last ten years of his life to painting increasingly transcendent subjects, such as tigers and mythic creatures. It is said that once he exclaimed: “From the age of 6 I had a mania for drawing the shapes of things. When I was 50 I had published a universe of designs. But all I have done before the age of 70 is not worth bothering with. At 75 I'll have learned something of the pattern of nature, of animals, of plants, of trees, birds, fish and insects. When I am 80 you will see real progress. At 90 I shall have cut my way deeply into the mystery of life itself. At 100, I shall be a marvelous artist. At 110, everything I create; a dot, a line, will jump to life as never before. To all of you who are going to live as long as I do, I promise to keep my word. I am writing this in my old age.

Hokusai's artistic influence has stretched to have affected the Art Nouveau style in Europe, including Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Hermann Obrist, all of whom have themes similar to Hokusai's. Hokusai lived a reclusive life with his daughters, including Oi, a fine painter in her own right. In 1811 Hokusai met Maki Bokusen in Nagoya, who arranged for publication the first ten volumes of the Hokusai Manga ('Hokusai Sketches') between 1812 and 1819. Hokusai had a long career, but he produced most of his important work after age 60. The largest of Hokusai's works is the 15-volume collection Hokusai Manga, a book crammed with nearly 4,000 sketches. These sketches are often incorrectly considered the precedent to modern manga, as Hokusai's Manga is a collection of sketches (of animals, people, objects, etc.), different from the story-based comic-book style of modern manga.

Um 1800 schmuggelte ein holländischer Kapitän Bilder eines damals unbekannten japanischen Malers nach Europa. Sein Name wurde bald weltberühmt: Hokusai. Die von einem leidenschaftlichen Interesse an der Natur und den Menschen seiner Heimat getragenen Malereien und Holzschnitte eröffneten zugleich den Blick in eine fremde Kultur. Jahrhundertelang hatte sich Japan vor der übrigen Welt verschlossen, war das Land mit dem Odium des Geheimnisvollen umgeben. Die Kultur des fernöstlichen Inselreiches war und ist durch Tradition geprägt. Das gilt auch für das Werk Hokusais, des außerhalb seines Landes wohl bekanntesten japanischen Künstlers. Seine wechselvolle Biografie zeichnet die Kunsthistorikerin und Japankennerin Ingrid Möller in 47 Szenen nach, die wesentlichen Lebensstationen folgen. Eindrucksvoll erzählt, ersteht zugleich ein lebendiges Bild des kulturellen und Alltagslebens im japanischen Kaiserreich um 1800. 24 farbige Abbildungen vermitteln einen Eindruck von dem faszinierenden Werk dieses Künstlers, der längst Eingang in den Schatz der Weltkunst gefunden hat.
