KIYOSHI SAITO (1907- 1997), was a seminal figure in the resurgence of the Japanese woodblock print after World War II. Saito was a mostly self-taught artist who first worked in oils and then dedicated himself to woodblock prints. With his winning of a special prize for Japanese artists at the First Biennial Exhibition of the Modern Art Museum of Sao Paolo in 1951 he was launched onto the world stage. He became a favorite of American collectors and in 1967 his portrait of then Prime Minister Eisaku Sato appeared on the cover of Time Magazine. His woodblock prints are known for their prominent display of woodgrain, simple forms, and wide variety of subjects, all of which are uniquely Japanese. While his subject matter is Japanese, the artist credited Gaugin, Munch, Redon, Mondrian and other Western artists as important influences on his work. Honored as bunka korosha (Person of Cultural Merit) in 1995, Kiyoshi passed away at the age of 90 in November 1997, shortly after opening the Kiyoshi Saito Museum of Art in Yanaizu.

Saito’s work can be found in numerous collections including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Portrait Gallery, Washington D.C., National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Cincinnati Art Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; New York Public Library; Art Institute of Chicago; Carnegie Museum of Art; Indianapolis Museum of Art; Portland Art Museum, Portland, Oregon; Cleveland Museum of Art; University of Michigan Museum of Art; Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art; Kanagawa Prefectural Museum; British Museum; Art Gallery of Greater Victoria; Gallery of New South Wales; Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art, Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art, Kanagawa Prefectural Museum of Art; The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo.
