Katsushika Hokusai (葛飾 北斎), was a painter, illustrator and engraver who specialised in ukiyo-e, as well as being the author of popular Japanese writings, mainly known as Hokusai (北斎), or by his nickname "Old Drawing Madman".
Born on the first day of the sexagesimal cycle of the ninth month of the metal-elder-dragon year of the Hōreki era - probably in October 1760, in Edo (now Tokyo) - and died on the morning of the 18th day of the 4th month of the Kaei era, year II - April or May 1849, in the same city.
His work influenced many European artists, in particular Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley, and more broadly, the artistic movement known as Japanism. Sometimes he signed his works, starting from 1800, using the formula Gakyōjin, "The Man Mad About Art". In 1814, he published his Manga which included sketches and designs. The Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (1831-1833), comprised in reality of 46 prints and The Great Wave off Kanagawa (1831) are his most well-known works. The cover of the score of La Mer (1905) by Claude Debussy is obviously a reproduction of Hokusai's Wave. The Japanese artist left behind more than 30,000 designs.
