by 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.
Autumn in Hakone Museum, 1954 - Handsome view of the entrance and garden of the Hakone Museum in autumn, the trees and foliage in warm tones of red, orange, and gold. A pathway curves toward the entryway at right while another leads to the pond beyond with a waterfall rushing over the rocky hillside beyond. White smoke rises above the gray mountains in the distance, perhaps from burning brush or leaves. A lovely design, beautifully colored.
