Urushibara Mokuchu (Yoshijiro) (1888-1953), Stonehenge, Moonlight
 (голосов: 0)
This view of Stonehenge was made by the Japanese artist Urushibara. A woodblock print artist, he came to London from Tokyo as part of an exhibition of Japanese print-making. He remained in England teaching colour woodblock printing techniques and became a major influence on the works of many European artists.

Urushibara’s own designs were usually still lifes (kacho-e), particularly of flowers, though he did produce landscapes of English and Italian scenes. This colour woodblock print of Stonehenge in moonlight was one of a pair (the other shows Stonehenge in daylight) produced from many of the same blocks (betsuzuri). This scene has an extra block for the moon, while the daytime scene has the addition of a shepherd and his dog herding his sheep in the foreground, and a flock of birds in the sky. The combination of the Japanese technique and Urushibara’s artistic heritage give these views of Stonehenge a distinctive look.
