Sunrise at Ginza, 1958 by Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995)

Original Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995) Japanese Woodblock Print
Sunrise at Ginza, 1958

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 - Intriguing modern view of the Ginza in the early morning as the rising sun bathes the sky in warm shades of peach and yellow. Only a few cars are out on the street and the buildings are shadowed in gray, the streetlights creating glowing white dots along the sides of the road. Wonderful use of texture to create interest and rhythm in the scene.
