Ogata Gekkô was a painter and woodblock print artist of the ukiyo-e genre.

Gekkô's work was originally closely based upon that of Kikuchi Yôsai, and the artist was also inspired by Hokusai, creating a series of one hundred prints of Mount Fuji. However, he did develop his own style, with significant stylistic elements from nihonga. His works were exhibited at a number of exhibitions, both those held domestically by the Ministry of Education and internationally. His works were seen in Chicago in 1893, Paris in 1900, and London in 1910.
