Shirabyōshi Hokusai Japanese Fine Art Postcard
India ink, colours and gold on silk, 97 x 41.3 cm

Shirabyōshi (白拍子) were female dancers, prominent in the Japanese Imperial Court, who performed traditional Japanese dances (the dances themselves also called shirabyōshi) dressed as men. The profession of shirabyōshi developed in the 12th century. They performed for nobles and high-ranking samurai, and at celebrations.

Katsushika Hokusai (October or November 1760–May 10, 1849) was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. In his time, he was Japan's leading expert on Chinese painting. Born in Edo (now Tokyo), Hokusai is best-known as author of the woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, c. 1831, which includes the iconic and internationally recognised print, The Great Wave off Kanagawa, created during the 1820s.

江戸本所割下水(現在の墨田区・両国付近)に生まれる。19歳の時、浮世絵界きっての巨匠・勝川春章に入門し「春朗」と号して役者絵などを描いた。のち狩野派をはじめ、大和絵や琳派、雪舟流、中国画など、各種の流派や画風を学習し、自己の作風へ吸収していった。

なかでも西洋画の影響は大きく、陰影法や遠近法を駆使した風景画はやがて名作「凱風快晴」を含む「冨嶽三十六景」へと大成してゆく。

北斎の旺盛な制作意欲は、肉筆美人画、狂歌絵本、読者挿絵など多分野に注がれ、『北斎漫画』全15冊、『富嶽百景』全3冊などを次々と生み出した。北斎は、生涯に亘って何事においても一点に安住することなく、自己改造・自己変革に努め、改号すること30回以上、転居すること93回という奇行は伝説的ですらある。

新しい表現の追求と旺盛な想像力のもとに生み出された作品は、西洋の画家たちに大きな影響を与え、今なお世界で最も有名な日本人画家のひとりとして記憶されている。
