Original Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995) Japanese Woodblock Print
Hikone Castle in Spring, 1951

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 fields stretching out across the plains toward Hikone Castle atop the mountain in the distance, the towers of the fortress just visible above the trees. The fields alternate between plowed brown earth, soft pink and yellow flowers, and the light green of new growth. A lovely landscape design.
