BIOGRAPHY

Sources: Guide to Modern Japanese Woodblock Prints: 1900-1975 by Helen Merritt and Nanako Yamada, University of Hawaii Press, 1992, p. 175; In Battle's Light: Woodblock Prints of Japan's Early Modern Wars, Elizabeth de Sabato Swinton, Worcester Art Museum, 1991, p. 22 and 125.

This collection's Russo-Japanese War print may be the only print by the artist who signed this print with the characters 米英 "Yonehide". 


Merritt's brief entry after his name says only "Russo-Japanese War prints published by Matsuno Yonejirō."


It is noted in In Battle's Light: Woodblock Prints of Japan's Early Modern Wars, both that, "He may be the publisher Matsuno Yoneijirō, who combined his own name with the second character from that of the artist Migata Toshihide" (1863-1925) and that he was "probably" part of the "Yoshitoshi school."
