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.
The Flowers and Birds of the Oriental Year - Charming design from Toshi Yoshida's rarely seen 1982 series depicting a different bird and tree or flower for each month. This series was commissioned by the Franklin Mint, and printed in Toshi Yoshida's studio in Japan. These attractive designs feature lovely detail, attractive color, and soft bokashi shading. Each has an impressed signature in the bottom margin. A great choice for display, either singly or in groups.
