Ogata Gekko : “Dragon Rising up to Heaven” (1897)

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.

Ogata Gekko was one of the earliest Japanese artists to gain international renown, exhibiting and winning awards at numerous world’s fairs. A self-taught artist, he made designs for lacquerware, illustrated books and newspapers before taking up printmaking. When he did so, his style often imitated the brush stroke, as is evident in the smoke that here surrounds the dragon, rising against the backdrop of Mount Fuji. His most famous composition, Dragon Rising up to Heaven belongs to his series Miscellany from Gekko, and is also repeated — with a much smaller dragon — in One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji.
