Two Owls, 1970 by Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995)

Original Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995) Japanese Woodblock Print
Two Owls, 1970

Toshi Yoshida - Toshi Yoshida was the son of Hiroshi Yoshida, one of the most famous woodblock print artists of the twentieth 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 the people and places around them.

Although Yoshida's prints span a wide range of subjects, he is most well known for his lovely portrayals of everyday life in Japan and the beautiful countryside. His works often include the human element, adding a sense of scale and a personal quality to his remarkable landscapes. Softly colored and masterfully composed, Toshi Yoshida's evocative woodblock prints capture the beauty of Japan in his own unique style.

From the Yoshida Family Archives - This print comes from a group of Toshi Yoshida woodblocks we recently acquired from the Yoshida family. The stock comes directly from the Yoshida archives, and includes some rare designs not commonly seen on the market. Since these prints were not originally intended for sale, some are lacking a printed title or other information in the margins. A great opportunity to acquire a classic Toshi Yoshida design with an interesting provenance.

Comments - Charming scene of two owls perched on the branch of a chestnut tree. A full moon glows through the leaves in the evening sky below. A terrific Toshi Yoshida design we've never before offered, in the large-format double oban size.
