early 1830s

Katsushika Hokusai 葛飾 北斎

(Japanese, 1760-1849)

Color woodblock print

Overall: 25.4 x 38.4 cm (10 x 15 1/8 in.)

Bequest of James Parmelee 1940.1002



Hokusai probably composed this print as a complement to Mt. Fuji in Clear Weather (see 1930.189) and to illustrate the mountain’s majesty in different weather. Here, a sudden shower covers most of the mountain’s base and slope with dark clouds.
