Many updates to the Urushibara website ...

The website for Yoshijiro Urushibara was been open for just around a week, and there have been many additions to the prints on display there since then.

I have added a new page on 'Creatures' to showcase many of his animal designs, including his famous storks and horses.

And there is a very interesting series of three prints of Notre Dame, where he used the same blocks (with small changes) to alter the time of day and mood ...

Dozens more still to come ...

I have seen the prints of the birds in rain before and admired them for they simplicity. I did not realize this was the artist. Thanks for doing this.

Hi Dave,

I was struck by the similarity of Ide Gakusui's print of "Heron in the Rain" (Circa 1950) to Yoshijiro Urushibara's print of the left facing "Stork"...the prints are similar enough in style to imagine that Ide Gakusui borrowed the theme from Yoshijro Urushibara's earlier (pre-1940?) print. There are plenty of differences though, just to keep us all on our toes! Thanks for bringing this wonderful artist to life on your website.

The Gakusui is here.
The Urushibaras are here and here. (My reproduction here)

But I think they are both trumped by Ohara Koson:
