Urushibara Yoshijirō came to Britain to demonstrate woodblock printing at the 1910 Japan-British Exhibition, an unprecedented effort to promote links between the two nations. He remained in London thereafter and departed from Japanese tradition by undertaking each stage of woodblock production himself: designing, carving and printing.
