Yoshijiro Urushibara, a Japanese printmaker in London: Hilary Chapman and Libby Horner
It was in the nature of things, I suppose, that Yoshijiro Urushibara went to live somewhere on the boundaries of Holland Park and Notting Hill (according to which source you go to) when he first came to live in London. Never an easy printmaker to get quite right, the first attempt to locate this intriguing artisan-printmaker, teacher and friend has been made by Hilary Chapman and Libby Horner in this book published in May, 2017. It is essentially a catalogue of his prints and includes essays and other biographical material.
My thanks are due to Darrel Karl who alerted me to the publication on his blog and who helped the authors with his considerable expertise. (The link is on my list). I will be reviewing the book once my copy arrives.
