Meet Hokusai Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) broke new ground in the field of ukiyo-e, or 'pictures of the floating world' and is renowned for his landscapes: the fine skill they required in composition, colour, and line, as well as their more intangible qualities, the distillation of nature in a precise moment. Breaking from tradition, he would sometimes outline the keyblock with blue ink rather than black—and as well, moved residence and changed his name frequently. He began his most renowned work at the age of 70, in his prolific final decade.
