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 Kenzan was a Japanese painter and potter known for his distinctive style of calligraphy. According to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this album leaf “recalls a famous episode from the tenth-century Ise Stories (Ise monogatari) in which the protagonist encounters an itinerant monk along an ivy-strewn path on Mount Utsu.” The verse reads “Though not yet / winds through the pines / blow all around / and I dread they’ll scatter / the crimson leaves of ivy.”
