Description

In this lecture, Dr. Kendall Brown, Professor of Asian Art at California State University, Long Beach, traces how oil painter Yoshida Hiroshi (1876-1950) revived his career and helped launch the "new print" movement by utilizing his skills as an artist, maven and entrepreneur. It concludes with his late works of Japanese and Asian subjects, suggesting his complex relationships to "Eastern" and "Western" cultures.

Following the lecture, Mr. Randall Fullmer, owner of the collection featured in the Carving Across Borders: Block Prints of Hiroshi Yoshida exhibition, and JFLA Director Hideki Hara will join Dr. Brown in a conversation which will delve into Yoshida’s trajectory from the perspectives of both a scholar and a collector.
