About This Print

Source: The Complete Woodblock Prints of Yoshida Hiroshi, Tadao Ogura, Abe Corporation, 1996, p. 26, 165.
This print was based on a sketch done by Yoshida during the last of his "three trips to China between 1939 and 1940, as a war painter for the Japanese Army. Whatever the official purpose, his personal motivation of any of his overseas trips was to sketch the places he visited."
