Secret of Hokusai

Look at these 2 pictures.
Both are by Katsushika Hokusai, the renowned ukiyoe painter.

What are the differences between them?

… Well, the first difference is time.

Hokusai made this picture when he was 45 years old.

And this one, “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”, he made nearly 30 years later, when he was 71.

What did he experience during this time that so radically altered the way he saw waves?

You’ll find the answer right here in Isumi.
