JOSEPH"></a> </center> <br><br> This depicts the second dream of St. Joseph, in which an angel (traditionally identified as St. Gabriel) warns him to flee into Egypt with the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Christ Child. This is the sixth commission I have received to draw Christian subjects in the style of Japanese art. In this work, I especially imitated the style of Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, a late <i>ukiyo-e</i> master. I referenced his series of woodblock prints <i>100 Aspects of the Moon</i> for many parts of my drawing. <br><br> St. Gabriel holds a fan containing a vision of the Flight into Egypt and the Miracle of the Cherry Tree. I attempted to convey a sense of otherworldly urgency by having the angel&rsquo;s robes and hair blown by a strong wind that affects nothing else in the picture. St. Joseph sleeps in the stable of Bethlehem, next to the gifts of the Magi (in antique Chinese vessels). The text is from Emile Raguet&rsquo;s Classical Japanese New Testament translation of 1910, and says <i>Gabriel</i> and <i>Arise, and take the child and his mother, and fly into Egypt: and be there until I shall tell thee. For it will come to pass that Herod will seek the child to destroy him.</i> <br><br> Medium: Letterpress print, based on an ink drawing <br> Press: Heidelberg cylinder (Rohner Letterpress, Chicago, IL) <br> Ink: Albion matte black (Graphic Chemical & Ink, Villa Park, IL) <br> Paper: Cotton wove (Reich Savoy) <br> Edges: Cut <br> Edition: Open, approximately 200 <br> Dimensions: 9" &times; 12" <br> Year: 2015 <br><br><hr><br> The print costs $41.
