The 36 views of the mount fuji is the most famous Japanese woodblock print series and comes from the hand of the artist HOKUSAI Katsushika. 'The Great Wave of Kanagawa' and the ‘Red Fuji’ are also a part of this series, which was created in the 1830, and especially well-known in the western world. Each piece depicts the mountain Mount Fuji (omote Fuji), mostly with the view from the capital city Edo, now Tokyo. In 1831/32 additional 10 copies were published so that the series comprises a total of 46 sheets. These views show the mountain from the back side (ura Fuji).

In 1829 Hokusai was almost 70 years old when he made the first sketches for this series and it seemed that it seems that he was aware of the meaning of the images. In the preface to hisEhon ‘The Hundred Views of Mount Fuji’ he wrote that nothing has to be mentioned in his 70 years of life before the appearance of the ‘36 Views of Mount Fuji’.

KATSUSHIKA Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
KATSUSHIKA Hokusai, one of the most important representatives of the Ukiyo-e genre, became renowned for his independent style, which is exhibited in the famous woodblock print series ‘Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji’. In his younger years, at the age of 18, he learned and perfected the art of color woodblock printing, working in a workshop with the Ukiyo-e master Katsukawa Shunshō, founder of the Katsukawa School. Hokusai’s first works, which are characterized by the delicate personal features of the sitters, date back to the year 1779. Due to Japan’s isolation from the outside world, Hokusai's art was at first only distributed within his home country. In the mid-19th century Dutch merchants brought his works to Europe, where they became a source of inspiration for various artists and movements, such as the Art Nouveau.
