USHIKU Kenji (1922 - 2012) - etching
Castle of the Sea
19.5" x 12.25"
USHIKU Kenji is known for his aquatints and etchings. He studied at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts. His first etchings and engravings were exhibited in Japan in the 1950's and since then his graphic works have been widely shown around the world. The artist found much inspiration in the natural world, and is known for his flower series, so this etching is a departure from his norm.
