Urushibara left Japan 1908, living in England and France until 1934, carving and printing his own designs.

A very fine and rarely seen print with nicely executed "bokashi" shading and visible "woodgrain" to background.

Yoshijiro Urushibara portraitUrushibara Yoshijirô was born in Tokyo in 1888 and studied mokuhan as a young man. In 1908, aged nineteen, he travelled to London, where he was among a group of woodblock print craftsmen who demonstrated printing techniques at the Anglo-Japanese Exhibition of 1910. He remained in London after the exhibition, restoring prints, making reproductions of prints, and mounting scrolls at the British Museum.

After the museum job, Urushibara worked independently, collaborating with English and French designers on prints—notably with Frank Brangwyn. He carved and printed many prints from Frank Brangwyn's designs of horses, landscapes, and flowers. In a portfolio called "Bruges" (1919) he reproduced several of Brangwyn's watercolours as large woodblock prints. In 1924 he again collaborated with Brangwyn in the portfolio Ten Woodcuts by Yoshijirô Urushibara after Designs by Frank Brangwyn.
