A rare collector


This fantastic print is from our Rare Print Collection. It is a design
from Katsushika Hokusai ‘s (Japanese, 1760-1849) incredibly beautiful series One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji. Hokusai
created this stunning series in 1834 to celebrate the majesty of Mount Fuji as
seen through the eyes of ordinary people. The series is, indeed, a masterwork.
The great master himself considered it to be, “The true essence of my art.”


The color enhanced Meiji edition prints of this series are some of the rarest and most
sought after of all Hokusai’s masterworks. We are very fortunate to be able to
offer this example to serious collectors. The print is of superb quality and is
the finest reprint we have ever had of this work.


Perhaps the most dramatic view of Mount Fuji ever created.
Heavy rain drenches the little hamlet at the foot of the great mountain as a
burst of lightning illuminates the night sky. This is one of the most striking
images in the world of ukiyo-e art.


This impressive antique print would be a wonderful choice for the
serious print collector and the interior decorator. It would be striking
displayed on your home or office wall


This restrike would be a
superb choice for any collector. It is truly a classic image from the golden
age of ukiyo-e.
It was made from
meticulously recarved wooden blocks and was printed using exactly the same
techniques – and with the same rich color and excellent detail – as the
Later edition prints like this make an exciting
addition to your collection and are a wonderful way to decorate – at a small
fraction of the staggering cost of one from the first edition print.


Matted and framed, this
print would make an exquisite presentation by itself or would be an impressive
addition to an arrangement with other prints. It is one you will be proud to display
in your home or office and is bound to become a cherished family heirloom.

Hokusai ‘s masterworks are in the collections of many of the world’s great
museums. Among them are the Metropolitan
of Art, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago; the British Museum, London; the State
Hermitage Museum
, Saint Petersburg, Russia; and the Tokyo National Museum, Tokyo.
