Kuwagata Kesai : “Birds and Flowers (Kachoga)”

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Kachoga, or literally “bird and flower pictures,” are a genre of Asian art that encompasses wide range of natural motifs. Introduced to Japan from China as early as the Tang Dynasty (618-907), their quality mass production became possible during the ukiyo-e period. Initially rendered in monochrome or very limited color, kachoga prints benefited from advancements that enabled the application of richer palettes and use of gradients to aid in the representation of texture, perspective and atmospheric effects. Many ukiyo-e masters became fond of them as a means of demonstrating their pictorial skills.
