Gafu Kaisei, Red Fuji, by Katsushika Hokusai

A masterpiece of the Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series by Katsushika Hokusai. The title "Gaifu" means the south wind. It is said that this scene, also known as "Red Fuji," can only be seen in the early morning from summer to autumn. There are various theories, but it seems that the composition on the right side is conscious of the light from the left side (east), and it is thought that the north side of Mt. Fuji was captured from the vicinity of Lake Kawaguchi. Its majestic appearance, which rises majestically in the cirrocumulus clouds that foreshadow autumn, can be said to be the one and only masterpiece among works that symbolize Mt. Fuji. "Gafu Kaisei" is one of the popular woodblock print of 36 views of Mt. Fuji, greatest work by Hokusai, as the same as Great Wave, Kanagawa oki namiura.
