Red Fuji, by Katsushika Hokusai

This print, along with the Great Wave Off Kanagawa is one of Hokusai's two most famous works. The extraordinary simplicity of the subject matter, the boldness of the composition with its subtle feeling for proportions, and the freshness and originality of the coloring, all came as a revelation to art circles in the West when Hokusai's work first became known there in the nineteenth century.
