Tour of Waterfalls in Various Province (a set of 8 works)

Hokusai produced his very first print in 1779 at the age of twenty. It was an actor print in the hosoban format signed Katsukawa Shunro. He built his career by creating more actor prints but was mainly active as a book illustrator.Hokusai also produced paintings throughout his life and his works surpassed those of other ukiyo-e masters in terms of both quality and quantity. He began to draw designs for large, single-sheet prints after the age of seventy. At this time he also started to produce landscape and flowers and birds prints; late in life he did however again concentrate on book illustrations and paintings. In summary Hokusai can be said to have contributed greatly to the field of ukiyo-e in a variety of ways.

“A Tour of Waterfalls in Various Provinces” by Katsushika Hokusai is a series that was produced immediately after his spectacular bestseller series “Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji" and released by the same publisher, Nishimura Eijudo.
Throughout his life, Hokusai continued his pursuit of depicting everything in the universe and was particularly passionate about the expression of "water" and "waves." Even after producing the masterpiece "The Great Wave off Kanagawa," he continued to explore new ways of expressing "water" with “A Tour of Waterfalls in Various Provinces.” In this series, he focused on capturing the ever-changing forms of water, and depicted eight famous waterfalls all over Japan with innovative ideas and striking expressiveness.
It is a series that can be said to be the culmination of Hokusai's expression of "water."
