Dawn at Sea, 1969 by Hodaka Yoshida (1926 - 1995)

Hodaka Yoshida (1926 - 1995) Object: Original Japanese Silkscreen Print
Dawn at Sea, 1969

Sosaku Hanga - The sosaku hanga or creative print movement in Japan began in the early part of the twentieth century. Unlike the traditional collaborative woodblock printing process utilizing a separate artist, carver, and printer along with a publisher, the sosaku hanga movement emphasized artist involvement in designing, carving, and printing the blocks himself, as the sole creator of his work. The movement gained popularity following World War II, earning international acclaim and expanding subject matter to include abstraction. Today most contemporary Japanese print artists design, carve, and print their woodblocks themselves, continuing the vibrant creative tradition established with ukiyo-e. Sosaku hanga prints encompass a wide range of subjects and expressive artistic styles, and are a great choice for a collector interested in modern and contemporary prints.

Hodaka Yoshida - The son of Hiroshi Yoshida and younger brother of Toshi Yoshida, Hodaka was a pioneer in modernist printmaking in Japan. He began creating abstract woodblock prints around 1950, and after 1960, started combining traditional woodblocks with other techniques such as lithography, etching, and silkscreen to achieve complex, multi-layered images. He shared his family's passion for travel, and a trip to Mexico in 1955 and exposure to pre-Columbian art inspired many early designs. Hodaka's works are much less commonly seen in the market than those by his father and brother. A great chance to acquire a modern print by this groundbreaking artist.
