Beautiful polychrome woodblock print of large horizontal format taken from the "One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji" (富士百景), the famous series that earned the artist Ogata Gekko (尾形月耕) the awarding of a prize at the St. Louis World's Fair, the international exhibition held in 1904 and attended by nearly twenty million people.

Looking at this work, the thought returns to "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" (神奈川沖浪裏) by Katsushika Hokusai (葛飾北斎). Also here, as in the famous work of the master Hokusai, the rough sea, symbol of a violent and threatening nature, is opposed to the indifference and religiosity of the sacred mountain, unperturbed, in the background.

The print on Japanese washi paper (和紙), made by the publisher Matsumoto Heikichi (松本平吉), is in very good general condition.
