Self-taught artist

Hokusai: The Man Who Painted a Mountain
by Deborah Kogan Ray

Hokusai was a prolific Japanese artist whose work transcended ancient notions of class and tradition. Deborah Kogan Ray illustrates her biography of Hokusai with her own richly coloured paintings. 

Good for ages 9 and up, Ray's book also provides an interesting peek at early Japanese history.
