Originally titled Under the Wave off Kanagawa, The Great Wave was the first woodblock print in a series Katsushika Hokusai called 36 Views of Mt. Fuji. Perhaps mistaken for a tsunami, the large rogue wave features menacing white claw- like tips and the use of imported Prussian blue ink. With Mt. Fuji in the distance, the tension-filled wave ascends above the sailors in their long, narrow boats in what is considered a compositional masterpiece.
