Yoshida Hiroshi was born in Fukuoka Prefecture in 1876, and became a passionate learner of Western-style painting in his earlier days. Later, he acquired his own style and techniques through traveling overseas, going on to become an achieved artist who not only received recognition in Japan, but from experts in the west as well. Exploring woodblock printing and its new possibilities was another focus of his works, mostly in the latter half of his career.
This exhibition marks the 70th anniversary since Yoshida’s death, featuring many of his print works throughout his life as the artist who brought Western realism and Japanese traditional art together.
