Ogata Gekko

Japanese Edo-era public domain woodblock prints by Ogata Gekkō (1859-1920). At 16, after his father’s death, Gekkō commenced his artistic pursuits in designing rickshaws and selling illustrations to newspapers. His talents included designing lacquer and pottery, ukiyo-e printing, Nihonga style, Shijo-style, and Chinese painting. Influenced by Hokusai, he created beautiful paintings of women, and the famous "100 views of Mount Fuji" series. As a member of Meiji Fine Art Society, he was well respected and is one of the first Japanese artists to attain international attention.
