Description

Beautifully illustrated throughout, Art of Hokusai takes you through his life, his work, his inspirations, and his legacy. Katsushika Hokusai (1760-May 10, 1849) was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. In his time he was Japan's leading expert on Chinese painting.

Then, create your own masterpieces using Hokusai's basic painting techniques as well as his unique color theory. Use helpful templates on perforated pages to transfer your favorite Hokusai paintings onto separate canvas or paper that are large enough to mount and frame. Learn to paint classic, traditional Asian art in the style of the master, Hokusai. This book is a lovely addition to any artist's library.
