Hashiguchi Goyō (橋口五葉) (1880 - 1921) is a Japanese artist.
Hashiguchi Kiyoshi was born in 1880 in Kagoshima. His father, Hashiguchi Kanemizu, was a samurai and an amateur painter of the Shijo style. His father hired a Kano painting teacher in 1899 when Kiyoshi was ten years old. Kiyoshi then enrolled at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts, and graduated as the top student in his class in 1905. It was then that he chose the alias Goyo, which refers to the five pine trees in his father's garden, which he particularly liked.
In 1915, encouraged by the editor Shin-Hanga Watanabe Shozaburo, he drew a print to be printed under the direction of Watanabe: it was The Bath (Yuami). While Watanabe aspired to continue this collaboration, Goyō decided otherwise. In 1916-1917, he became the supervisor of the reproduction of 12 volumes entitled "Japanese Prints (Yamato nishiki-e)" and appropriated the techniques of the engravers and printers. At the same time, he drew from live models. From 1918 until his death, he personally directed the engraving, printing, and publishing of his own work. During this period he produced 13 prints : four landscapes, one nature scene of ducks and eight portraits of women. His work thus counts fourteen prints, if we include The Bath.
