Hiroshi Yoshida (1876-1950)
Hiroshi Yoshida was born in the city of Kurme, in Kyushu, on September 19, 1876. He showed an early aptitude for art fostered by his adoptive father, a teacher of painting in the public schools. At age 19 he was sent to Kyoto to study under Tamura Skoryu, a well known teacher of western style painting. He then studied under Koyama Shotaro, in Tokyo, for another three years.

Yoshida had his American debut exhibition at Detroit Museum of Art (now Detroit Institute of Art) in 1899, after which he visited Boston, Washington, Providence, and Europe. In 1920, Yoshida presented his first woodcut at the Watanabe Print Workshop in Tokyo, organized by Watanabe Shozaburo (1885-1962), publisher and advocate of the shin hanga movement. However, Yoshida’s collaboration with Watanabe was short partly due to the Great Kanto earthquake on September 1, 1923.

In 1925, Yoshida hired a group of professional carvers and printers, and established his own studio. Prints were made under the his close supervision. Yoshida combined the ukiyo-e collaborative system with the sosaku hanga principle of “artist’s prints”, and formed the third school, separating himself from the shin hanga and sosaku hanga movements.
