The first volume was published in 1814, and sequels were made even after Hokusai's death. The fifteenth volume, published in 1878 (Meiji 11), was the final volume. At the time, it is said that Hokusai's works attracted European painters from far across the sea and had a great influence on impressionist artists. Even today, they are still called "Hokusai sketches" and are popularly known as "Hoku-Sai sketches".
