Japan’s highest and most sacred mountain has been depicted in art since the eleventh century. Yoshida Hiroshi had already created a series of ten images of the mountain when he produced this woodcut in 1935, inspired by Katsushika Hokusai’s celebrated 36 views of the peak. Subtle gradations of colour show Fuji’s distinctive conical peak in the soft light of dawn.
