: I have been asked by a Norwegian artist whether it would be ok for him to copy f.ex Hokusais Great Wave into one of his paintings, or if that could possibly infringe somebodys copyrights?

Copyright in any work created here in Japan persists until December 31st of the 50th year after the creator's death. As Hokusai passed away in 1849, I think you are now pretty much in the clear!
