Public domain ← → Fuji, Mountains in clear Weather (Red Fuji) Katsushika Hokusai Date: 1831 Style: Ukiyo-e Series: Thirty-six views of Mount Fuji Genre: landscape Media: woodcut Location: Private Collection Tags: Mount-Fuji, mountains Order an oil painting reproduction Ad Image dimension 750x501px, View all sizes This was one of the prints published in Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji that helped secure Hokusai’s fame and popularity within Japan and overseas. It depicts Mount Fuji in a deep, saturated red; thin white lines of snow tracing lines down from the tip of the peak. Small clusters of clouds fill the sky, and tiny trees grow to the base of the mountain, indicating its massive size. Hokusai’s infatuation with Mount Fuji was much more than an admiration of its beauty. The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter told that a goddess placed an elixir of life at the top of the peak, and thus the mountain was a secret source of immortality, as well as a secret reason for Hokusai’ obsession with the mountain.
