Original Shiho Sakakibara (1887 - 1971) Japanese Woodblock Print
Birds and Blossoms in a Snowstorm, 1960
Shiho Sakakibara- Born in Kyoto in 1887, Shiho Sakakibara studied traditional Japanese painting at the Kyoto City School of Art and Craft and the Kyoto City Technical College of Painting. He is best known for his beautiful paintings of birds and flowers based on the style of the Maruyama-Shijo school, with many woodblocks made from his original designs. These lyrical images combine careful observation from nature with soft washes of color and a fine sense of asymmetrical balance. The subtle colors and gradations of tone are exquisitely rendered, creating richly elegant compositions. This woodblock print comes from a series published in 1960 from blocks masterfully carved by Akiho Kagetsusen. Includes two embossed seals in lower right margin. This large format print would make a wonderful framed display.
