Hiroshi Yoshida (Japanese, 1876-1950). Japanese shin-hanga woodblock print titled "Nikko kiri no hi (Misty day in Nikko)," depicting travelers visiting a shrine nestled amongst a misty forest. Pencil signed along the lower right; titled along the lower left. With the artist's seal in plate along the lower right and further stamped along the left margin.

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.
