Japanese Prints @ St. Kate's: Selections from the Archives & Special Collections at St. Catherine University

Ōno Bakufu

Ōno Bakufu (大野麦風)

Ōno Bakufu was an oil painter and print artist who studied at the Hyōgo Prefectural Academy of Fine Arts and later at the Pacific Western-Style Painting Association (Taiheiyōgakai, 太平洋画会). He favored fish and flower prints, with one exceptional series being the Great Japanese Fish Picture Collection published by Kyoto Hanga-in. While Bakufu belonged to the sōsaku hanga (創作版画) movement, which was known for artists producing self-carved woodblocks prints, Bakufu frequently utilized skilled carvers and woodblock printmakers to publish his work.
