Yozo Hamaguchi (1909–2000) is credited with reviving the mezzotint as a modern expressive medium and is widely regarded as one of the finest mezzotint artists in the history of the medium.

He learned the seventeenth century intaglio technique in Paris in the 1930’s becoming enchanted with its tonal possibilities.

Hamaguchi usually practiced the still life genre, simplifying the elements and suspending them against velvety grounds in a signature style that appealed strongly to western patrons.
