Katsushika Hokusai was one of Japan's best-known artists - and quite the eccentric. Renown for using incantations to ward off people as well as his dreadful finances, Hokusai remained active and creative throughout his life. His best works were created in his seventies: landscapes of Mount Fuji, grotesque illustrations of romantic novels and emotion-filled paintings of birds and flowers.
