Product Description

Yoshijiro Urushibara (1889-1953) was born in Japan and was invited to come to London, and subsequently Paris, in 1910 to demonstrate the woodblock printing technique as part of an Anglo-Japanese exhibition. He returned to England in 1912 to become a print restorer at the British Museum. Between 1917 and 1923 he collaborated with the artist, Frank Brangwyn, to reinterpret 50 of his pictures as woodblock prints, many of which were published. After 1924, he adopted the art name ‘Mokuchu’, which is often incorporated into his signature block. He returned to Japan during WWII and, having avoided conscription, he continued to work as a master woodblock artist until his death in 1953.
