Junichiro Sekino, 20th Century Master - Junichiro Sekino was one of the leading artists of the twentieth century sosaku hanga, or creative prints, movement in Japan, in which artists themselves were involved in every aspect of printmaking. Sekino designed, carved, and printed his images himself, gaining an international reputation for his amazing range of subjects and techniques. A true 20th century master, Sekino's works are included in major museum collections around the world. His woodblocks are highly collectible and sought after by modern print collectors.
