Kurara: The Dazzling Life of Hokusai's Daughter

Synopsis
All she wanted to do was paint

Kurara: Japanese for dazzling, mesmerizing, brilliance.
The act of painting was always kurara to O-Ei, the daughter of the Edo period master painter Katsushika Hokusai. Since her childhood, she was captivated by painting. O-Ei marries a town painter, but she soon chooses art over marriage and divorces him. Once she returns to the family home, she begins assisting her father. O-Ei is by his side as he completes his iconic "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji" series. When Hokusai grew too old to wield his brush freely, O-Ei becomes his "brush" and paints on his behalf. It's during this time that she starts to grow a strong fascination with colors as she finally develops her own painting style.
