Yoshio Markino in 1912.

Yoshio Markino (born Heiji Makino, 25 December 1869 – 18 October 1956) was a Japanese artist and author who spent much of his life in London. He is known for his watercolors for the Studio magazine and The Colour of London (1907), the book that offered, in word and picture, his outsider's response to the modern Edwardian metropolis. Three years later he recounted his British experiences in an autobiography titled A Japanese Artist in London.
