Original Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995) Japanese Woodblock Print
Castle at Himeji, 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 - Handsome view of the castle at Himeji, the impressive structure towering above high stone walls as the setting sun floods the sky with warm yellow light. An outer wall runs across the foreground, with tall pines and trees in shadowy tones above it. A terrific design.
