Goseda Yoshimatsu was born in Edo in 1855. He moved to Yokohama in 1864 and became a pupil of the artist Charles Wirgman in 1866. He quickly learnt the watercolour technique of painting landscape and genre scenes. Wirgman wrote in a newspaper report of February 1874 that Yoshimatsu was a far more talented artist then his teacher.
In 1876 he studied under Antonio Fontanesi at the Kobu Daigaku Bijutsu Gakko,and from 1878 travelled with the Emperor Meiji in the Hokuriku district,painting famous places along the way. From 1880-1887 he was in France studying with Leon Bonnat,and was the first Japanese artist to exhibit at the Paris Salon du Printemps in April 1881.

Examples of his work can be found at the Kanagawa Prefectural Museum, Yokohama, Japan.
