A special exhibition scheduled to take place at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum looks into the works of Yoshida Hiroshi (1876 - 1950), a renowned painter who also developed skill in woodblock prints later in his career. In his early days he enthusiastically studied Western-style painting, but managed to form his own unique style of expression. Some refer to his work as a fusion of Western realism and traditional Japanese print art.
The event commemorates 70 years since Yoshida's passing and will showcase works from every stage of his career, including his early prints and sketchbooks, right through to his masterpieces.
The admission price for the special exhibition has not yet been determined. Details will be updated on the official website closer to the event's commencement.
