Hiroshi Yoshida the wonderful Japanese printmaker — active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries — was trained in western art styles and painting and eventually combined those aesthetics with the traditions of Japanese art to create beautiful woodblock paints in the shin hanga style.

A new exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum commemorates the 70th anniversary of Yoshida’s death, and the online highlights of the exhibition offer a selection of high quality examples of his prints. The exhibition runs until March 28, 2021. I don’t know how long the exhibition website will be onine.

For more images and links to his work, see my previous posts on Hiroshi Yoshida.

  1. Wonderful images, thanks for the post and the link.
    I am in awe that the series of six images from the ‘Seto inland sea’ (one of which is your 4th from above) seem to be printed from the same blocks – { ‘morning’, ‘AM’, ‘PM’, ‘fog’, ‘evening’, ‘night’ }. The man had his colour schemes under control.
