Everyone’s seen that picture of the wave with Mt. Fuji in the background. The color woodblock impression—The Great Wave Off Kanagawa, from the series “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji” by Katsushika Hokusai—is an example of Edo period printmaking that has permeated Western consciousness. The famous breaker and 89 other examples of classic Ukiyo-e imagery from Japan’s Edo period (1615–1868) are juxtaposed with 30 works by ten contemporary artists, demonstrating the continued influence of this striking art form.
