    Katsushikia Hokusai, Images from Hokusai: First Manga Master

    I checked out the book Hokusai: First Manga Master from the library last week and below are scanned images of some of the pieces I enjoyed most from the book.  Hokusai, one of Japan's greatest artists, is probably known best for his woodblock print The Great Wave.  He lived from 1760 - 1849.  Although all of the pieces scanned below are presented in black and white, Hokusai painted in color, and so I suspect many of these original pieces were done in color.  (Right-click to view the images in full.)
