Ishiyama Temple, 1946 by Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995)

Original Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995) Japanese Woodblock Print
Ishiyama Temple, 1946

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 inside Ishiyama Temple, with visitors walking among the tall wooden pillars. A large red paper lantern hangs in the center with smaller lanterns around it. Small senjafuda or thousand shrine tags are pasted high on the columns by worshippers visiting the temple, such as the pilgrim at lower left, who wears a white robe and a straw hat. The shadowy interior provides a wonderful contrast to the bright sunlit foliage beyond the entrance. A "Jikoku" seal in the upper left margin indicates that Toshi Yoshida carved the blocks for this print himself.
