Fine Wind, Clear Morning is a part of the famous Ukiyo-e painting series “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” by the famous Japanese woodblock painter Katsushika Hokusai. It is the same series which is comprises another known Ukiyo-e painting called “The Great Wave of Kanagawa.”

The above painting with high-contrast colors stands out the most in the painting series. The red Mount Fuji, which gained this color due to the rising sun, stands tall in the background of the blue, white-clouded sky. The foothill is filled with the jungle, which is black as sunshine has yet to reach the bottom part.

The painting displays the nature’s beauty with extravagant colors. Artist has used artificial colors to remind us about the natural beauty.
