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 - Beautiful view of the famous Ginkakuji Temple from the rock garden. The unique low vantage point emphasizes the beautiful raked lines of stone with the temple rising majestically in the center, surrounded by colorful pines and shrubbery. The white lines are deeply embossed, adding an extra dimension to the design. A striking image that would make a terrific framed display.
