Hiroshi Yoshida (Japanese, 1876-1950). Double-oban Japanese shin-hanga woodblock print titled "Sailing Boats - Mist" depicting a sailing ship floating on the water, 1926.

Pencil signed along the lower right and titled along the lower left; 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. Later in his life 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: 22 in x width: 16 in.
