The Great Wave

During his long career, Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) is estimated to have designed more than 30,000 woodblock prints. His series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji Hokusai broke new ground by focusing on landscape as a subject in its own right.

This range of Great Wave items are exclusive to Bristol Museums Shop, featuring the woodblock colour print from Bristol Museum & Art Gallery's collection.
