Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995)
Snow Country, 1955
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.
Snow Country - Beautiful Yoshida image of a rural country scene, the rooftops of a small village and the hills beyond covered in a thick blanket of snow. Fantastic, tranquil composition, a lovely landscape portrait of an early winter morning.
