The Great Wave off Kanagawa (Kanagawa oki nami ura​) by Hokusai.

Happy birthday today to Claude Debussy, born on this date in 1862! Since childhood, Debussy has been fascinated by the sea. For his three symphonic sketches collectively titled “La Mer” (The Sea), he drew inspiration from literature and art, including the iconic woodcut of circa 1830 by Japanese artist Hokusai, ‘The Great Wave Off Kanagawa’, which Debussy commissioned to be printed. on the cover of the published music and of which he had a framed copy at home. Hear Debussy’s impressionistic evocation of the sea at different times of the day, the play of waves, and the interplay of wind and waves, in “La Mer,” today’s midday masterpiece at 2 p.m.
