A woodblock print by the hand of one of the masters of 20th century Japanese printmaking, 12 1/2" by 9 1/2" image, 14" by 10 3/4" paper sheet, unsigned, but there is an artist seal. The image is of the Kokeshi dolls with round heads and cylindrical shape. This example appears to be the artist earlier work. 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.
