Ogata Gekko

Gekko's Fifty-four Chapters of the Tale of Genji (Chapter 6) - Handsome woodblock from Gekko's beautiful series, "Fifty-four Chapters of the Tale of Genji." Each design illustrates a chapter from Murasaki's classic Japanese novel, "The Tale of Genji."

 

These wonderful prints feature scenes of upper-class courtly life, beautifully drawn with flowing calligraphic lines and soft colors. Gekko's images are a unique union of traditional subjects and a modern artistic sensibility. These fine woodblocks have a distinct sense of personality, and the beautiful settings reflect the classic landscape and architecture of life in the Heian era.
