Hiroshi Yoshida (Japanese, 1876-1950). Japanese shin-hang woodblock print titled "Approach to Agra No. 3" depicting a crowd moving towards Agra, a city on the banks of the Yamuna river in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, southeast of the capital New Delhi, 1932. The Taj Mahal in the background shines brightly. Jizuri seal along the upper left margin. Pencil signed along the lower right; titled along the lower left; marked with Yoshida's seal in plate along the lower left; further inscribed in Japanese along the left margin. The jizuri "self-printed" seal indicates that the printing process was directly supervised by him and that he played an active role in the creation of this print. These seals were typically reserved for only the highest quality impressions as decided by Yoshida.

One of the leading figures in the Japanese Shin-hanga movement, Hiroshi Yoshida was born in Fukuoka in 1876. In 1893, he moved to Kyoto and studied yoga and nihonga styles of painting and watercolors. It came only in middle age he started collaborating with the shin-hanga publisher Watanabe Shozaburo. Despite his late debut as a shin-hanga printmaker, he successfully put himself on the map as the greatest artist of the shin-hanga style and is especially noted for his excellent landscape prints. His prints are highly recognized in both Japan and overseas.

Height: 11 in x width: 15 3/4 in.
