Vase of flowers with text on right. Yoshijiro Urushibara (1888 - 1953) was a Japanese printmaker who came to England at the age of nineteen to demonstrate Japanese printmaking at the Anglo-Japanese Exhibition. He worked with Frank Brangwyn, producing a portfolio of woodblocks called 'Bruges' in 1919, and 'Ten Woodcuts by Yoshijiro Urushibara after designs by Frank Brangwyn' in 1924. He returned to Japan on the outbreak of World War II, but again collaborated with Brangwyn on a portfolio entitled 'Leaves from the sketch books of Frank Brangwyn'.
