Ogata Gekko : “Dragonfly and Pumpkin” (c. 1890-1920)

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.

This excellent kachoga, or “bird and flower print,” was conceived by Ogata Gekko, one of the earliest Japanese artists to gain international renown, exhibiting and winning awards at numerous world’s fairs. Its minimalist composition is characteristic of Japanese art, where aesthetic statements are often made in the taper of a few lines, or the gradients of an ink wash. Whereas Western art, with its three-point perspective and advanced techniques of realism, sometimes borders on the novelistic, traditional Japanese art observes the same economy and precision as its poetry.
