Fabulous Masterpieces was asked to paint a fine art reproduction oil painting of The Great Wave by Hokusai for customers in Australia but with a twist.
We were asked to paint a fine art reproduction of The Great Wave using two different paintings by Hokusai. The artist was asked to base the art reproduction on the painting below with the golden sky, called A Coloured Version of the Big Wave (minus the birds) but use the colours seen in Hokusai’s The Great Wave.
We’ve just been sent an insitu photograph of the finished fine art replica and I thought I’d show you what it looks like.
The Great Wave by Japanese artist, Hokusai was originally a wood block print. The Great Wave was actually the first in a series of 36 views of Mount Fiji and is not only Hokusai’s most famous work but arguably one of the most recognized works of Japanese art in the world.
The original wood cut of Hokusai’s The Great Wave is actually quite small, it only measures 25.4 cm x 37.1 cm and can be found at the Hakone Museum in Japan. Fabulous Masterpieces‘ art reproduction of The Great Wave, which you can see in the photo, was made-to-measure to fit the client’s wall space and measured 220 cm x 151 cm.
Hokusai (1760 – 1849) loved to depict water in motion and in this seascape, even though it’s stormy, the sun is shining. It is a lovely painting!
