Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji

Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji was a series of thirty-six prints by Japanese artist Hokusai Katsushika during the ukiyo-e art movement. Mt. Fuji can be seen visibly in all of these prints, but the focus of each piece is not always directly on it. In some pieces Mt. Fuji might be the only thing in the print, while in others it may be subtly in the background. To be honest, I never actually noticed Mt. Fuji was in The Great Wave Off Kanagawa until I looked into this series. I became interested in this series because I really love The Great Wave piece and wanted to look into art similar to it. Overall, I find the style of the ukiyo-e art movement to be very beautiful and I think everyone should check out this series.
