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.
Umbrella - Lovely view of a rainy street scene in 1940. The classic architecture and woman in kimono make this a quintessentially Japanese scene. The bright colors of the women’s kimonos stand out against the soft background- beautiful.
