Filling the Well: Vincent van Gogh and Katsushika Hokusai

The Great Wave by Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849)
from the series “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji (Fugaku sanjurokkei)”
Art Institute of Chicago

There is peace even in the storm.
– Vincent van Gogh
Watch Hokusai: Beyond the Great Wave (an interesting three minute film):
"It seems to have been Vincent van Gogh and his brother, Theo, who were among the first people [outside of Japan] to discover and articulate what was so great about this print."
