"Hiroshi created oil paintings throughout his career. He made many oils early in his life during his watercolor period and a number of them later in life during his woodcut period. In fact, most of Hiroshi's existing works are oil paintings, and the characteristics of his style can be seen in them. However, for a twenty-year period between 1910 and 1930, while he was in his early thirties to his early fifties, Hiroshi concentrated almost exclusively on painting with oils." - A Japanese Legacy, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts; pg. 28.
