Hiroshige_big Wave

Katsushika Hokusai is the artist responsible for the "Great Wave Off Of Kanagawa". This man greatly influenced the work of the younger artist Utagawa Hiroshige (aka Ichiyusai Hiroshige), who was approximately one generation younger than the elder Hokusai.
Hiroshige is often erroneously associated with "The Great Wave...", and it is unknown how he came to be thought of as responsible for Hokusai's work.
Likewise any modernized/stylized reproduction of "The Great Wave" work should also correctly be attributed to Hokusai, not Hiroshige.
