|TOKURIKI TOMIKICHIRO(1902 - 1999) - Tokuriki was born and raised in Kyotoand was influenced by the local art scene from childhood. He stayed in Kyotofor his entire career and was a leader of the Kyoto Sosaku Hanga. He graduated from the KyotoCity School of Fine Arts and Crafts and after that from the KyotoCity Specialist School of Painting. While he began his career in the painting field, he found his true calling in the woodblock print field and was enthusiastic about the reemergence of woodblock prints in 20th century Japanese art. He was influential in the development of new artists later in his career and set up his own publishing company called Matsukyu.
