Amano Kunihiro

Prints by Amano Kunihiro (b.1929). Made In Japan: The Postwar Creative Print Movement has a very short biography:

Largely self-taught in the art of woodblock printing, Amano attended classes at Musashino University of Art, Tokyo, for three years during the postwar period. He began showing his woodblock prints with the Japan Print Association in 1955 and soon found success in international exhibitions. Incorporating the wood grain and using a special palette of oil pigments, Amano approaches abstraction without sacrificing naturalism.

More: 1, 2, 3, 4, plus one in this post from last year.
