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 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.
Comments - 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.
