This biography from the Archives of AskART:
"Hiroshi Yoshida was a leading figure in the 'shin hanga' (or new print) movement.  He worked primarily as a painter until his late forties when he became fascinated with woodblock printing. After working with the Watanabe print shop for several years, Yoshida decided to fund his own workshop.  Unlike ukiyo-e artists, he was intimately involved in all parts of the printmaking process.  He designed the key blocks, chose the colors for the prints, and supervised the printers. In some cases, he even helped to carve the printing blocks. This was unusual, considering the traditional division of labor between designer, carver, and printer at that time."

"The majority of Yoshida's prints are richly detailed landscapes, featuring such diverse subjects as the Sphinx, the Taj Mahal, and Mount Rainier.  Yoshida travelled frequently, and made sketching and painting trips all around the world.  He was an avid mountain climber, and is noted for his depiction of alpine scenes.  He also was remarkably skilled at depicting water, with its intricate reflections and complex flow patterns.  Yoshida's prints were very popular with Western collectors, and he was one of the only shin hanga artists to sign and title his prints in English."

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A Japanese landscape painter and printmaker, especially known for woodcuts, Hiroshi Yoshida was born in Kyusha or Kurema, Japan, and was much influenced by his adoptive father who was a painting teacher in the public schools.   At age 19, he began art study in Kyoto with Tamura Skoryu, who did western style painting, which was becoming increasingly accepted in Japan.  For three years Yoshida studied in Tokyo with Soyama Shotaro.

In 1899, he received his first recognition in America with an exhibition of his work at the Detroit Museum, later renamed the Detroit Institute of Art.  During that period he traveled on the East Coast of the USA and in Europe.   By the 1920s, in addition to oil and watercolor landscape painting, he was heavily involved in woodblock printmaking.

Referred to as Romantic Realism in western style, his artwork was heavily influenced by his travels in America.  "Two Grand Canyon scenes indicate Yoshida's presence in Arizona about 1925".  (Dawdy, 486)

His work is exhibited at the Fogg Museum at Harvard University, and numerous other museums including the Museum of Northern Arizona and the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
