Katsushika Hokusai is one of Japan’s most renowned 19th-century ukiyo-e artists. He is known worldwide for his “Red Fuji” and “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”. But little is known about

Hokusai’s life, let alone that he had a daughter, O-Ei, who was also a brilliant painter. O-Ei was fascinated by colors. To her, painting was always kurara (a Japanese word meaning “dazzling”). She got married but soon chose art over matrimony and returned home to become her father’s assistant. She was by Hokusai’s side as he completed his iconic “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” series. When Hokusai grew too old to wield a brush, O-Ei painted for him.

This is the story of O-Ei: a Japanese woman who devoted her life to art and found her own style of painting while helping her genius of a father.
