About Goebel Hokusai Porcelain Vase – Medium – Great Wave Off Kanagawa (1829-1832)
This elegant Goebel Hokusai Porcelain Vase measuring 7.87″ tall vase features the Japanese Ukiyo-e, Edo period artist Katsushika Hokusai’s iconic woodblock print “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” (1829-1830). Katsushika Hokusai became world-famous through his picture series “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji” which includes the famous “Great Wave off Kanagawa” woodblock print. Katsushika Hokusai is one of the most renowned masters of the Japanese color print (Ukiyo-e); he did not produce his greatest works until 1818-1830. In his youth he had begun with portraits of women and actors; but his fame rests chiefly on his direct and imaginative perception of landscape, which was an innovation to the ukiyo-e movement. His striking and original color, a vigorous sense of simplified design, his humor and understanding combined with a fine grasp of form to produce something new in Oriental landscape and nature art.
