Tokio Miyashita Abstract Color Etching & Woodblock Listed Japanese Printmaker
Born in Tokyo, Miyashita studied woodcut under Un’ichi Hiratsuka in 1947 and intaglio under Jun’ichiro Sekino in 1950. He was a member of the Japan Print Society and Japan Copper Plate Artists Association. Among Miyashita’s innovations were the use of wire soldered on to the plate in order to achieve a hard contour line and the development of his own type of handmade paper. Miyashita exhibied internationally throughout the 1960s, and taught at the Tokyo University of Art and Education. Miyashita’s abstract work often combined intaglio and woodblock printmaking techniques, achieving a vibrant and dramatic effect. Miyashita’s work is in major collections worldwide including the Brooklyn Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Museum of Art in Tokyo, the National Gallery of Canada, the San Francisco Fine Arts Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and many others. This print, titled “Horizon at Sunset, ” is an excellent example of Miyashita’s abstract style. Combining intaglio and woodblock techniques, it is signed lower right, titled on the lower edge, and numbered 18/50 lower left. It measures 15″ x 11 1/8″ (paper size). It is in good condition but with a pin hole on the upper edge center of the image (visible when held to the light). Please see my other auctions for more fine paintings and prints.
