Footnotes

  • 大判藍摺絵 葛飾北斎 神奈川沖浪裏 (富嶽三十六景) 1830年代前期頃

    In late 19th century, Japanese prints were exported in large quantities to Europe and America and created a craze called Japaonism, influencing the fine and decorative arts. The Impressionist artists such as Degas (1834-1917) Van Gogh (1853-1890) and Monet (1840-1926) were among those whose works were significantly inspired by their colour, composition, flatness and subject-matter; Hokusai's 'great wave' is the most famous of them all and one of the few prints universally admired in both Eastern and Western worlds.
