In his own words:
"My work is an attempt to document my existence. To leave a visual record of

Portrait of Artistic Genuis: Katsushika Hokusai
This is a Smithsonian special on the legendary Japanese Ukiyo-e artist
Katsushika Hokusai and one of the segments is about one of great
masterpieces in the history of art - Southern Wind Clear Dawn (Red Fuji). The

three days of the year, and some years Fuji doesn't turn red at all.
It's amazing to think that seventy year old Hokusai managed to capture a
view of a real Red Fuji dawn.
