The artwork of Hiroshi Yoshida

Click any image to enlarge

Hiroshi Yoshida was a 20th century Japanese painter and print maker. He was trained in the Western style of oil painting, but eventually moved on to Shin-hanga, which was a return to more a traditional, collaborative woodblock process. However, it still retained a lot of Western influences, particularly in the use of light and color. Shin-hanga prints were primarily aimed for sale to Western audiences.

Hiroshi Yoshida travelled extensively. He visited America, Europe, India and Southeast Asia. Much of his work is landscapes and scenes from the places he visited. It is interesting to see them through the lens of Japanese stylism.
