A framed woodblock print by the hand of one of the masters of 20th century Japanese printmaking, 8 1/2" by 11 1/4" inside the existing mat, 15" by 18" framed, signed in pencil by the artist at lower right and numbered 43/120 at lower left margin in pencil. The image is of a nighttime snowfall in front of a traditional Japanese structure. Sekino was creating art before age 20. He knew Shiko Munakata, the famous printmaker, while still young, as they were from the same area. By 1932 Sekino was exhibiting. He was in Tokyo in 1939, studying with master Koshiro Onchi, but World War II proved to be a huge disruption to the art community. Not until the 1950's did Sekino emerge from the dark war years, showing his work in European Biennales. In 1963 he made his first trip to the USA, and by 1963 he was actually teaching printmaking at Oregon State University. In the post-war years, Sekino's unusual combination of artistic and technical mastery was fully recognized, and he received the wide international recognition he had earned. The artist mixed woodblock with western techniques like lithography and etching, to great effect. See the net for much more on the artist and his work. CONDITION: visually, excellent; not examined out of the frame.
