Fuji from Gotenyama at Shinagawa on Tokaido" at an estimate of $6,000-8,000.  The piece, once held in the Matsushita Gallery in New York, is yet another reflection of the artist’s deep admiration of Mt. Fuji.  This love for the Japanese mountain was also the catalyst for his success as an artist, contributing to the creation of his internationally lauded "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji" series.  Hokusai was also quite a character, having professionally changed his name multiple times, residing in at least ninety homes and signing one of his last works "old man crazy about painting."
