Description
"If heaven had granted me five more years, I could have become a real painter," said Katsushika Hokusai at the end of his already long life, revealing his unending striving for refinement and expression in his art. Yet the Japanese printmaker was unquestionably a real painter, inspiring his fellow artists with his fusion of traditional and Western painting techniques and also profoundly influencing European artists from Monet to Van Gogh. Though technically a pop-up book, this is actually an album interpreting a half-dozen masterworks by Hokusai in three dimensions, surrounded by quotes, commentary, and analysis of the art and the artist. Kirifuri Waterfall at Kurokami Mountain in Shimotsuke rises majestically from these oversized 24 × 13–inch spreads, while Phoenix spreads his wings more than 30 inches wide, and the iconic Under the Wave at Kanagawa towers above the open book.
