Yasuo Kuniyoshi

Biography

Yasuo Kuniyoshi (1 September 1893 - 14 May 1953) was an American painter, photographer and printmaker.

Kenneth Hayes Miller introduced Kuniyoshi to Intaglio printmaking, and made approximately 45 prints between 1916 and 1918. In 1922, he learned about zinc plate lithography and adopted the technique.

Kuniyoshi was also known for his still-life paintings of common objects, female circus performers and nudes. Throughout Kuniyoshi’s career he had frequent changes in his art: methods and subject matter.
