Thank you very much for your kind understanding. The young Junichiro grew up in Aomori City together with Munakata Shiko. Munakata, who should late become the “Japanese Picasso”, might have been the one who had inflamed the enthusiasm of the young Sekino for drawing and painting. From an early age on Sekino studied printmaking and oil painting. In 1936 he even won a prize at Bunten for an etching. Bunten was part of the official government controlled art scene with juries who decided on the admission of artworks. Being accepted to these official exhibitions, was quite some success. And winning a prize was an even more remarkable achievement by the young artist. In 1939 Sekino moved to Tokyo. He met and studied under Onchi Koshiro, the great mentor of the sosaku hanga art movement. During his art training Sekino had learned both, the Japanese woodblock method and Western techniques like etching. Although he had attended art training, Sekino was basically self-taught. His great paragons were the old Japanese and European masters – Sharaku, Hiroshige and Toulouse Lautrec, Rembrandt and especially Albrecht Dürer. Material = Paper(glass in frame) Condition= Normal.
