The Great Wave by Hokusai

Hokusai settled on landscaping painting when he was about 38 years old, apparently much inspired by engravings brought in by the Dutch. He was greatly interested in the examples of Western art that filtered into Japan through the Dutch trading establishments in Nagasaki. Hokusai had been creating prints for many decades, but his early works were largely works with people.
