Yoshida Hiroshi (1876-1950) was born in the city of Kurume, Fukuoka, in Kyushu in 1876. He showed an early aptitude for art fostered by his adoptive father, a teacher of painting in the public schools. At age 17 he was sent to Kyoto to study under Tamura Souryu, a well known teacher of western-style painting. He then studied under Koyama Shotaro, in Tokyo. In 1925, he hired a group of professional carvers and printers, and established his own studio. Prints were made under his close supervision. Yoshida combined the ukiyo-e collaborative system with the sōsaku-hanga principle of “artist’s prints”, and formed a third school, separating himself from the shin-hanga and sōsaku-hanga movement. This exhibition shows his rich artistic legacy and how he continues to be relevant to modern art lovers.
