HOKUSAI 1760-1849 HOKUSAIS LIFE Hokusai was born in

HOKUSAI 1760-1849 HOKUSAIS LIFE Hokusai was born in Japan in 1760, and lived to be 89 years old! Hokusai worked in the medium of

printmaking, which dates back to the 9th century in China. He is famous for his print, The Great Wave from his book of illustrated prints titled, 36 Views of Mount Fuji. This book of prints illustrate the earthquake that struck Mount Fuji in 1827.

Many artists copied elements of Hokusais Great Wave in their artworks. Self Portrait PRINTMAKING Through printmaking Hokusai sketched images on a plank of wood, then used sharp tools to carve away the parts of the wood where he

did not want ink in the print. Next, he inked the woodblock, and transferred the ink block to a piece of paper. Printmaking allows artists to make multiple copies of their artwork. The first print from the block is called a proof, it is like the practice. There are many different kinds of printmaking including: woodcut, etching, lithography, and screen printing.

Printmaking: an art form which allows an artist to make multiples of one image. Different printmaking techniques are: etching, woodblock, relief, lithography,

and screen printing. Woodblock: the kind of printmaking technique Hokusai did for The Great Wave. It involves carving the image into wood. Where the image is carved no ink will stick to the

wood. Where there is no wood carved out of the block, ink will stick. The Great Wave from Hokusais book of illustrated prints titled, 36 Views of Mount Fuji. 1823, MMOA
