About the work
An original woodblock print by Japanese printmaker Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995). According to materials from the Yoshida Hanga Studio, the blocks for this design were cut by Toshi himself. Paper measures 10 5/8” x 7 7/8.” Nice impression, color slightly faded, otherwise excellent. This work is unframed.
Toshi was the second generation of the Yoshida family to work in the woodblock medium. His father, Hiroshi Yoshida, and mother, Fujio Yoshida, were artists and printmakers.
While Toshi is best known for his woodblock prints, he was also a notable painter and illustrator. By the time of his death in 1995, Toshi had surpassed his father with a body of woodblock prints totaling 396 images. His range of works included traditional Japanese subjects, scenes of Africa, and complete abstracts.
