Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995)
San Francisco, 1971
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.
San Francisco - An incredible Toshi Yoshida USA print. This beautiful view of the city from atop one of the many hills is instantly recognizable. Yoshida's design places a beautiful old tree in the extreme foreground with the rooftops of the city in the valley below. This wonderful Yoshida print is a must have for those interested in Yoshida's work- very difficult to find.
