Yuji Abe passed away in Tokyo on 15 May. Japan art leader Abe-san was 86 He was a dean of the modern a Japanese print world from his base at Yoseido Gallery in Ginza. He tutored many young and not so young gaijin to learn about Japanese modern prints He was a dashing suave figure in his 50s. He had been in ill health for a number of years I attach a recently restored 1961 maki print he may have handled way back then. This print was done 50 years ago. In a visit to Yoseido in the mid-70s I asked Abe-san what he thought about contemporary Chinese art; he paused for a minute or so and said very presently, “ Chinese art is sleeping”. It has since awaken! he was born in Ginza in tokyo 1925.
