Abstruse, 1964 by Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995)

Original Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995) Japanese Woodblock Print
Abstruse, 1964

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.

Toshi Yoshida's Abstract Prints - After the death of his father in 1950, Toshi Yoshida began a period of experimentation with abstract woodblock print designs. These works feature bold shapes and lines, complemented by sophisticated color and wonderful patterns. Toshi Yoshida created nearly 300 abstract prints, the majority of these from the mid-1950s through the 1960s, many of them published in small, limited editions. These dramatic prints have a distinctly modern, graphic appeal, and show another side of Toshi's amazing creativity. A fantastic choice for the collector interested in modern woodblocks, pencil signed and numbered.
