ABSTRACT


Katsushika Hokusai, born in Edo, 1760, today known as the capital Tokyo, is considered one of the most important artists of Japanese art.Hokusai, a painter and print artist, specializes in wood engraving.This type of painting of the artist, who is also a Ukiyo-e painter, consists of images of the day-to-day life of Edo.These pictures, called Ukiyo-e, are defined as the contemporary picture of the period.These wooden prints, which make it easier for people to meet the paintings, also play an important role in the spread of the works of Hokusai and other Japanese painters and their recognition in the world.The most well-known series he produced in the 1820s are those related to Fuji Mountain, which he portrays in passion.This series, made up of 36 Fuji scenes, is made of wood and consists of landscapes depicting the geographical structure of the region and pictures that can be described as quite elegant, occasionally documenting daily life.The original name of this series was The Great Wave of Kanagawa, the Kanagawa Waves, a poetic sign of Hokusai and his elaborate mastery, and his distinctive ability to describe, as a source of inspiration for later generations of his art. In this survey, the life and paintings of Katsushika Hokusai are examined and it is aimed to create a unique resource for researchers and artists through Japanese art and research subjects.
