Bakufu Ōno 1888-1976

Printmaker born in Tokyo, but moved to Kansai area after the great Kantō earthquake which left most of Tokyo in ruins in 1923. Awarded the title of the honorary member of the Hyogo Prefecture Academy of Fine Arts, he was also a member of Taiheiyogakai. His oil paintings have been exhibited at the great Teiten exhibition in 1929. Ōno is famous for landscape and fish prints, popularised by the series 'The Familiar Fishes of Nippon' released in 1940, published by Kyoto Hanga-in. The blocks were carved by Matsuda and Kikuda, printed by Shinagawa, Nagae, Uchida and Ōno himself. Ōnos works were never titled, and the woodblock print community often applied unofficial titles to them.
