Yoshida Hiroshi: Commemorating the 70th Anniversary of His Death
Ends in 23 days
Born in the city of Kurume, Fukuoka, Yoshida Hiroshi (1876-1950) aggressively studied Western-style painting in his young days. Through travels overseas, he absorbed the world’s cultures and, amid that experience, formulated his own expressive style and technique. After achieving renown as a landscape painter, Yoshida in the second half of his career took up the challenge of the woodblock print and pioneered new possibilities in printmaking. Walking deep in the mountains, he experienced nature intensely and depicted the movement of light and flowing water with great sensitivity, using sophisticated techniques astonishing even to Western experts. Yoshida Hiroshi—an artist who fused Western realism and traditional Japanese print art. To mark the 70th anniversary of the artist’s death, this exhibition will gather print works representing every stage of his development—from his earliest prints to his masterpieces, together with his woodblocks and sketchbooks—to reveal the full scope of Yoshida’s print art.
