Hiroshi Yoshida (1876 - 1950)
Hiroshi Yoshida was one of the principal printmakers involved in the revival of the woodcut after the Meiji period. He took a keen interest in the technical details of printmaking, carving many of the blocks himself. Yoshida travelled widely and despite losing nearly all his early work in fires following the 1923 earthquake in Japan produced 259 subjects in the course of a thirty year career. His prints capture a sense of place with accuracy and atmosphere and there is sufficient Western influence in his work to ensure that his distinctive works are now collected worldwide. His work is represented in many public collections worldwide and is the Boston Museum of Art in the US.
