Description

15.5 x 22.4 cm, from a bound volume.

This print is from the series one hundred views of Mount Fuji, published between 1835 and 1880. Hokusai evidently had a deep connection to the mountain, which had become a place of worship and pilgrimage for ascetic Buddhists and Shinto sects alike. The series followed Hokusai’s successful colour prints of thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. Though in absence of colour, the one hundred views series displays Hokusai's unique composition, sometimes challenging the viewer to spot the playfully concealed peak of Mount Fuji. 

This print shows a man stretching at his writing desk, in front of a circular window encircling Mount Fuji. Birds emerge from a nearby tree, flying up to the snow-capped peak of the mountain like pilgrims.
