Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995)
Toshi Yoshida - Toshi Yoshida was the son of Hiroshi Yoshida, one of the most famous woodblock print artists of the 20th century. He followed the family tradition, and centuries old Japanese craft, of woodblock printmaking adopting and developing his signature style. His close relationship with his father was instrumental in the pursuit of his art. Together, father and son traveled Japan, and the globe, examining and sketching people and places around them.
Hyoroku - A beautiful night scene and one of Toshi Yoshida’s best works. Lanterns glow a soft orange over the classic traditional buildings along Hyoroku. A woman walks in a traditional kimono softly lit by the overhead light- great image.
