“Onami”(Masculine Waves) by Katsushika Hokusai
The picture reveal Hokusai’s truly impressive ability to depict huge breaking, billowing ocean waves.
The strength of Hokusai’s ocean waves here strongly reminds viewers of his internationally famous “Great Wave off Kanagawa,” also known as “Mount Fuji Seen below a Wave at Kanagawa,” and the detail and apparent depth of depiction give these angry waves in the nikuhitsuga style the power to pull the viewer right into the picture.
