Yoshida Hiroshi was one of the chief artists of the shin hanga movement, which revived ukiyo-e for the 20th century, with vividly colored prints of traditional scenes.

Yoshida shifted from oil painting to print designs in 1926, joining publisher Watanabe Shôzaburô's shin hanga efforts.

His son Yoshida Tôshi went on to become a significant figure in the sôsaku hanga ("creative prints") movement.
