Hokusai Katsushika (1760 – 1849) was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter of the Edo Shogun period.
Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji is an ukiyo-e series of large, color woodblock prints by him. The series depicts Mount Fuji in differing seasons and weather conditions from a variety of different places and distances.
His influences stretched to his contemporaries in nineteenth century Europe whose new style Art Nouveau, or Jugendstil in Germany, was influenced by him.
