"One of six prints from the United States series, Hiroshi also executed a Europe series, which consisted of eleven images. Both sets of prints were the first he undertook in his new printmaking studio, which he set up in the fall of 1925." - A Japanese Legacy, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts; pg. 45.
