Biography Hyde, Helen (1868 - 1919)
Helen Hyde was born in New York on April 6 1868. Her father died when she was only 14. In 1890, she went to Europe, and studied in Berlin and in Paris. In Paris she studied with Félix Régamey (a.o.), who was to have a great influence on her later work. In 1899 she went to Japan, where Ernest Fenollosa directed her attention to Japanese woodcuts. In Tokyo she also met Emil Orlik. After a short stay in USA she returned to Japan in 1902, and she stayed until 1910. In the last ten years of her life she was very successful, and she died before she could fully exploit that success. She is generally considered one of the most influential "Japanese-Western" woodblock print artists.
