Ohno Bakufu – 大野麦風 (1888-1976) – Farming Landscape – 山水

$1,000.00 CAD

Best known for his series of 72 fish woodblock prints in limited edition books, Ohno-san used the western painting techniques he learned at Taiheiyogakai Kenkyusho (Est. 1889) to capture their beauty by using dead models. One of the main reasons they are highly prized is because, as apposed to the average kabuki print, which required an average of 17 passes of the washi paper going on and off the carved blocks, extensive layering was done, with prints having to be registered 135 to 250 times (!), creating a dense, layered effect that brought realism to the layers of scales and their reflective qualities. The last two photos are an example of his famous work depicting fish and are not for sale. Ohno-san’s works are held in the collections of The Tokyo Station Gallery, The Yatomi Museum of History and Folklore, The Kyoto Hanga Institute, The Museum of Anthropology at UBC, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Himeji City Museum of Art, and many others.
