Original Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995) Japanese Woodblock Print
Hummingbird and Fuchsia, 1971

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 - Fantastic Toshi Yoshida design of hummingbirds fluttering near a fuchsia plant. The wings are a blur of motion as the delicate birds hover in mid-air near the hanging blossoms in dark tones of violet and red. The lush foliage is beautifully rendered with multiple colors to add volume and depth. The sky is shaded from a blush of palest lavender to a light periwinkle violet, completing the colors of the image wonderfully. A stunning design in the rare double-oban format.
