Catalogue Details

Trained in tradition Japanese and Western art painting traditions, in 1899 and 1900 Hiroshi travelled to America and Europe.
Around 1919 he became interested in wood-block prints, based on the legacy and foundations of the masters of the Edo Period. A few were published by the house of Watanabe in 1921 and 1922. The blocks, and substantially the entire editions of these prints (all except the few copies which had been sent to America or elsewhere out of Tokyo), were destroyed in the Great Earthquake disaster of 1 September 1923
In 1925, Mr Yoshida set to work again, and produced prints bearing the date of every year but one from 1925 to 1941 - in 1934, when their home and establishment were being moved from Nakazato to the new house in Shimo-ochiai, there was no studio ready for use, hence no color-prints of that year. Nineteen twenty-six was annus mirabilis: of that year's date forty-two prints, including many of the finest ones; 1928 produced thirty-six and 1931 twenty-one.
The cutting of the blocks and the printing of his works were from 1925 onward always done under Mr Yoshida's direct supervision, by artisans permanently employed by him - he likened himself to a conductor. The result is a greater consistency throughout the entire body of his work. Only after the print had been produced under supervision, then inspected minutely by him for any flaw in paper, registration or colour (the slightest flaw resulting in rejection), was it ready to receive his signature in pencil and the marginal stamp 'jizuri', 'self-printed', which was his warranty that the print represented his work.
One of the most interesting of the experiments in print-making was his adoption with oversize blocks. The standard size for prints is mino, formed by cutting in half a sheet of the hosho paper used for them. Of the two hundred fifty-seven prints which constitute Yoshida's life's work in this medium, two hundred are of mino size (printing to approximately 24 x 38 centimeters, or 9 1/2 x 15 inches); twenty-nine are the full hosho size; twenty are of various sizes smaller than mino; and eight are larger than hosho. These large prints, ranging up to 55 x 84 centimeters, are unique in the color-print art, and must be regarded as one of its supreme accomplishments, technically and artistically.
