Remark:
Medetaki Noutori No Fuji
The original painting of this piece is painted in 1998, her mature age. Because of the theme, in many works of print art, Mt. Fuji was drawn. Kataoka Tamako, who was enchanted by the majesty of volcanoes, traveled to volcanoes throughout the nation, from Hokkaido to Sakura-jima in Kagoshima in 1960's to 1970's. During her early travels, she sketched Mt. Fuji. Another trip to Mt. Fuji after many visits to other volcanoes captured her inspiration and made it impossible for her to draw any other mountain. Mt. Fuji exercised this power over her.

"Mt. Fuji was simple, I thought. I thought I could easily draw it as a white fan hanging upside-down. But I felt that Mt. Fuji was telling me, 'You, idiot! You will never be able to draw me'. Each time I attempted to draw Mt. Fuji, I could not express its height, width and the fear it inspired. All my thoughts returned to nothing, and I suffered terribly. I decided then to stay here and continue drawing Mt. Fuji until I die. After that, every time I sketched and painted Mt. Fuji, I bowed to it. I always drew some flowers around it as if clothing it in a Kimono with flowers drawn on it. This is my relationship with Mt. Fuji."
