Lot 0166
Artist: Yoshida, Hiroshi, 1876-1950

Title: Kumoi Cherry Tree at Sunset

Date: c. 1900

Medium: watercolor

Dimensions: 13 3/4 x 20 1/2 inches

Notes: This work is a previously unknown version of Yoshida’s most famous image – The Kumoi Cherry Tree. While similar to the watercolor at The Detroit Museum of Art, and the oversized print from 1926, the perspective and time of day are slightly different, though the view is obviously the same. Yoshida’s grandson, who has seen images of this watercolor, describes it as "the very best water color (sic) of Hiroshi I have seen."


Minor fading; backing
