Yoshida Hiroshi

Japanese, 1876 - 1950

One of the most renowned Japanese print artists of the 20th century, Yoshida Hiroshi traveled extensively and created paintings and prints featuring memorable sites on his journeys. Mount Fuji is no doubt the most iconic landmark in Japan. It is also a destination for Buddhist and Shinto pilgrims. One of the ten views of Mount Fuji that Yoshida created in the 1920s, this print depicts the snow-capped mountain from Yoshida village, located southwest of the mountain.
