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