Kyoto Rediscovered, Japanese Woodblock Prints, Clifton Karhu, 1stEd. A Portfolio of Woodblock Prints. Weatherhill / Tankosha, 1980, First English edition. Cloth hard covers with gilt titles and decoration, square folio, brodart protective cover, 192 pages, color and b&w illustrations, maps. Clifton Karhu was an American artist born in 1927 in Duluth , Minnesota and died in Kanazawa , Japan in March 2007. He resided more than 50 years in Japan and created many Japanese prints. Biography Enlisted in the army, he discovers Japan shortly after the Second World War. This first trip to Japan was a revelation for him. He acculturates dramatically to Japanese culture and soon spoke fluent Japanese soon In its commitment to total acculturation, it stops gradually watercolors and painting and creating Japanese prints since the early 1960s. To learn the techniques of woodcut, he left Gifu Prefecture and settled in Kyoto. His fame grew over the years in Western and Japanese art circles and the general public. One of his prints is even used as an illustration in the Lonely Planet Japan. He died on 24 March 2007 in his second home of Kanazawa. Artistic works The use of vivid colors, precise and often geometric layout of the scene, the use of black lines very supported characterize its ukiyoe. Almost all prints are themed on Japan including Kyoto, temples and Gion. Very few prints are inspired by non-Japanese scenes (eg the series of prints of Hong Kong). Clifton Karhu thereby shows its “Japaneseness” and exception among artists of ukiyoe twentieth century who did not hesitate to draw very different landscapes (Hiroshi Yoshida in India and Europe, Paul Jacoulet on islands Pacific, Korea and China). He also made some erotic prints (shunga). In 1964 he was a member of the Nihon Hanga Kyokai , an association of writers artists from Japan. His works have entered the collections of some American museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston known for its large collection of ukiyoe and more recently the Minnesota Museum of Arts.
