UNDER THE GREAT WAVE OFF KANAGAWA
1830–1833, woodblock print Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC
The print depicting three boats moving through a stormtossed sea and Mount Fuji visible in the background. This is the first in a series of landscape prints entitled Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. The use of Prussian blue in this work revolutionized Japanese prints. The Great Wave is the best-known work of ukiyo-e artists in Japan and all around the world.
