Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849)

Hokusai est un peintre japonais, dessinateur spécialiste de l’ukiyo-e (estampe) et graveur. Son œuvre influença de nombreux artistes européens, en particulier Gauguin, Van Gogh et Claude Monet. Il est parfois vu comme le père du manga, mot qu’il a inventé et qui signifie à peu près « esquisse spontanée ». La grande vague de Kanagawa, (dans laquelle l’utilisation du bleu de Prusse renouvelait le langage de l’estampe japonaise), dont la composition est une synthèse de l’estampe japonaise traditionnelle et de la « perspective » occidentale. La gracieuse montagne enneigée se tient imperturbable contre le bleu profond de l’horizon. Cependant elle est réduite à un petit monticule comparée à la force dominante de la vague qui menace d’engloutir les bateaux. Une telle manipulation espiègle de la composition est typique de beaucoup des œuvres de Hokusai. Cette gravure lui valut un succès immédiat au Japon, puis en Europe, où elle fut une des sources d’inspiration des Impressionnistes.

The graceful snow-clad mountain stands unperturbed against the deep blue of the horizon. Yet it is reduced to a tiny hillock compared with the towering strength of the wave which threatens to engulf the struggling boats. Such clever, playful manipulation of the composition is a feature of many of Hokusai's works. This etching won him immediate success in Japan, then in Europe where it was one of the sources of inspiration for the Impressionists
