Libby Horner is a freelance art historian, curator, film producer, lecturer, writer, compulsive cataloguer and lover of all things Japanese. She is also the world's leading authority on the multi-talented artist Frank Brangwyn and is currently compiling the catalogue raisonne of all his work - both fine and decorative art - estimated to be in excess of 12,000 items! Brangwyn was greatly influenced by Japanese art and crafts.
Given these predilections it is hardly surprising that she co-authored (with Hilary Chapman) Yoshijiro Urushibara. A Japanese printmaker in London. A catalogue raisonne (published by Hotei, 2017). Urushibara was not only a hugely talented printmaker and artist in his own right but also collaborated with contemporary artists in France and England, most notably with the inevitable Brangwyn, to produce exquisite colour woodcuts.
The talk will last approximately 1 hour
