Description: This print is a proof of the influence of Japanese design on the West during the period after Japan’s ‘opening’ because it was made in England. Indeed, Urushibara was living and working in London and influenced British artists attempting to make woodblock prints following traditional Japanese techniques.

Dave had met Yoshijiro-san's son couple a number of times, and Ichiro-san had been very helpful in providing information about his father's life and work for the 'tribute' website on Urushibara that Dave produced at the time.

A group of three lilies with red spots and one white bud are nicely displayed inside a two-handled blue vase with spiral patterns. Their vivid color stands out against a plain ochre background. It is interesting how the superposition of color layers adds texture and details to some elements of the design. For example, this technique reveals that the vase is made of ceramic material.

This print came to Mokuhankan from a private collector in England. 


This print is slightly toned overall and has a few small spots.
