The poster used for this product is a part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We have adapted the original print to elegantly display on the artblock product. The Great Wave off Kanagawa ("Under a wave off Kanagawa"), also known as The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai. It was published sometime between 1829 and 1833 in the late Edo period as the first print in Hokusai's series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. It is Hokusai's most famous work, and one of the most recognizable works of Japanese art in the world. The image depicts an enormous wave threatening boats off the coast of the town of Kanagawa (the present-day city of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture). While sometimes assumed to be a tsunami, the wave is more likely to be a large rogue wave. As in all the prints in the series, it depicts the area around Mount Fuji under particular conditions, and the mountain itself appears in the background.
If kept out of direct sunlight, the color in the print should experience little to no fading for many years. Remove dust with a mircrofiber cloth or dry wipe. If necessary to remove spots or splashes art print, spot clean with damp soft cloth.
