A Sudden Gust Of Wind (after Hokusai)1993 by Jeff Wall

'A Sudden Gust of Wind' is a large colour photograph displayed in a light box. It depicts a flat, open landscape in which four foreground figures are frozen as they respond to a sudden gust of wind. It is based on a woodcut, 'Travellers Caught in a Sudden breeze at Ejiri' (c.1832) from a famous portfolio, The Thirty-six Views of Fuji, by the Japanese painter and printmaker Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849).
