Helen Hyde

Born in New York in 1868, Hyde had wide-ranging art studies in her youth, in San Francisco, New York, Berlin and Paris. She travelled to Japan when she was 31, studied Japanese painting techniques, and began to produce woodblock prints, working with local craftsmen. Her main themes were saccharine images of women and children. She died of cancer at 51.
