Iidabashi, 1939 by Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995)

Original Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995) Japanese Woodblock Print
Iidabashi, 1939

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 from the Iidabashi or Iida Bridge of boats along the river in the early morning. A willow tree frames the scene at right and buildings line the opposite embankment. At left, a man climbs a steep wooden plank from his boat up to a warehouse above. Wonderful handling of the reflections on the water, the village still shadowed in soft grays and pale blue violets as a golden hazy light fills the sky. A lovely design.
