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.
Pagoda in Kyoto - Attractive view of a pagoda in Kyoto as evening falls, the setting sun spreading a warm glow across the sky. A willow tree hangs over the pond in the foreground, its reflection shimmering on the water below. A handsome design with soft color and fine bokashi shading.
