Katsushika Hokusai 1760 – 1849

Hokusai was born to an artisan family in Edo, Japan.  His childhood name was Tokitarō.  His father never made Hokusai an heir and it is possible that his mother was a concubine.   Hokusai began painting around the age of six.

At 12 Hokusai went to work in a bookshop and at 14 he also became an apprentice to a wood-carver.  At 18 he was also accepted into the studio of Katsukawa Shunshō where he would learn to master the art of ukiyo-e.   Ukiyo-e focused on images of the courtesans as well as Kabuki actors who were popular in Japan cities at the time.

Hokusai also changed the subjects of his works from the images of courtesans and actors.  Instead, his work became focused on landscapes and images of the daily life of Japanese people from a variety of social levels.  This change of subject was also a breakthrough in the world of ukiyo-e and in Hokusai’s career.  Fireworks at Ryōgoku Bridge (1790) dates from this period of Hokusai’s life.
