Biography Sekino, Jun'ichir˘ (1914 - 1988)
Even before his twentieth birthday Jun'ichir˘ Sekino was already involved with woodblock prints: he made them together with friends while still at High School, and he knew Shik˘ Munakata (a few years his senior) from boyhood (Munakata was also from Aomori prefecture). From 1932 he exhibited with the Nihon Hanga Ky˘kai. In the 30s he studied with K˘shir˘ Onchi and with Senpan Maekawa. After WWII he became especially well-known in USA, but his star rose rapidly elsewhere in the world as well. His work is characterized by its technical accomplishment and variety.
