Artist Bio: Y. Ito or Ito Yoshihiku lived from 1867-1942. He studied first under Tamura Soritsu in Kyoto, graduated in 1888 from Kyoto Prefecture School of Painting and went to Tokyo to study under Koyama Shotaro briefly before entering Harada Naojiro's school, the Shobikan.

Ito Yuhan's painting style is always recognizable from across the room. He signed his watercolour paintings Y. ITO. He was a very successful landscape painter as well as a woodblock print artist. He created 12 woodblock images that were published by Nishinomiya Yosaku from the 1950's (not pre-war, according to the publisher Nishinomiya), signing them YUHAN. This painting is well done in a 'Western' painting style that started in the late 1880s when Japan opened its' doors to the West and its' teachers. The popularity of this style grew into the 'shin hanga' woodblock print movement at the beginning of the 20th century. His woodblock prints have either his signature in Western script ""Y Ito"" or in kanji. Those in Western script are the earlier (pre-war) editions.
