The Great Wave of Kanagawa is one of the most important works of the Japanese painter Hokusai: in it you find the typical features of oriental art combined with those of Western art in a delicious balance. The painting is a particularly rough stretch of sea symbolized by the great wave, where you can see two fishing boats, while in the background you can see the Mount Fuji, symbol of Japan. It is interesting to note how the colours used for the sea are identical to those of the mountain and how the foam of the big wave at the centre of the work is confused with the snow on the top of Mount Fuji, to emphasize the connection between land and water. The Japanese habit of observing images from right to left can make you think that, despite the power of the wave, it is not the protagonist: the role belongs to the boats, which symbolize the difficulty of facing the sea with its dangers, both evident and hidden. The Hokusai wave has become a symbol of Japanese art. This work is the most famous of the "Thirty-six views of Mount Fuji". It is taken from a woodcut published for the first time between 1830 and 1831. There are several copies of this subject, which are preserved in various museums of the world, in Italy in Turin at the Museum of Oriental Art.
