Storm below Mount Fuji (Sanka no haku u), from the series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (Fugaku sanjurokkei). Artist: Katsushika Hokusai (Japanese, Tokyo (Edo) 1760-1849 Tokyo (Edo)). Culture: Japan. Dimensions: 10 x 14 3/4 in. (25.4 x 37.5 cm). Date: ca. 1830-32. Mount Fuji projects majestically above the clouds. A lightning bolt shown against the shape of Fuji opens up a dialogue of oppositions: the enduring, static Mount Fuji is pitted against the transitory and fleeting nature of lightning. The solemn, towering mountain remains undisturbed by dangerous thunderstorms. Museum: Metropolitan
