This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Tokyo, Japan on Jan. 21, 1894, the son of a wealthy merchant, Yoshida Sekido studied art in his native city and in his early teens his work was accepted in the Imperial exhibition.  He was apprenticed to Kanyu, a local master, and then for seven years under Takeuchi Seiho.

By age 26 he had achieved fame in Japan, having taken top prizes in national exhibitions.  In 1921 he continued his art study in Canada at the Ontario College of Art, and in 1922 began a seven-year course of study at the ASL of NYC under George Bridgman.

During his years in New York City, he had several successful solo exhibitions.  In 1931 he moved to California and took up residence on a ranch in the Pajaro Valley near Watsonville.  After establishing a studio in San Francisco in 1932, he gave private art lessons and was employed by the Federal Art Project.

At the onset of WWII, he returned to Tokyo and was active there until 1954.

He died in NYC in 1966.

His forte was watercolors on silk of birds, trees, and flowers.
