The Dynamic Painting is a copy of The Great Wave off Kanagawa, a woodblock print that is the most famous work of Hokusai. This print was part of a series called "36 Views of Mount Fuji" - on close inspection of the painting, Mount Fuji is clearly visible of the horizon.

Other than the mountain, the print depicts three boats struggling against huge waves near Kanagawa - this view today would most likely have the skyscrapers of Tokyo in the background as well.

Woodblock print

The signature piece of ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai, painted as part of a series when he was in his 60s. Although it is dubbed "Thirty-Six Views," he eventually added 10 more to make 46 in total.
