Anemones -  URUSHIBARA

Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1915, edition probably 100. 12 x 7 7/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. Here we have a superb impression with the colors especially vibrant. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. Urushibara's best work was a group of floral woodcuts of which this is a notable example. The artist moved to England at a young age and lived there as well as in France until 1934. He was very active with the European color woodcut artists at the time and collaborated with Frank Brangwyn on several prints.

Evening, Outside London -  URUSHIBARA

Evening, Outside London
Woodcut printed in colors, undated (probably done in the 1920s), small edition. 13 7/8 x 9 1/2 in. Signed in pencil and inscribed "No.3". This is a superb impression with full margins. The condition is quite good apart from minor handling marks in the margins here and there. Urushibara came to London at the age of nineteen and ultimately landed a position in the British Museum. He lived in London and France until 1934 and had a profound influence on many woodcut artists working in the 1920s. Walter Phillips, John Platt, Allen Seaby, Frank Brangwyn and others were indebted to Urushibara. This woodcut is not particularly common.
