The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese artist Hokusai. It is Hokusai's most famous work, and one of the most recognizable works of Japanese art in the world.

The image depicts an enormous wave threatening three boats off the coast of the town of Kanagawa (the present-day city of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture) while Mount Fuji rises in the background. It depicts the area around Mount Fuji under particular conditions, and the mountain itself appears in the background. Throughout the series are dramatic uses of Berlin blue pigment.

Katsushika Hokusai (31 October 1760 – 10 May 1849), was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist of the Edo period, and he is best known for the woodblock print series Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, which includes the iconic print The Great Wave off Kanagawa. Hokusai worked in a variety of mediums including printmaking and illustration and over his career he produced over 30,000 paintings, sketches, and woodblock prints.
