Village in Harima, 1951 by Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995)

Original Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995) Japanese Woodblock Print
Village in Harima, 1951

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.

Bill's $39 Selection Auctions - Fuji Arts’ low opening auctions are extremely popular and a great place to find a bargain. I’ve personally selected 160 high quality prints and we’re starting them at $39. Any high bid wins! We’ll post all 160 prints over four days. I looked for a good mix, rare and unusual, and in popular categories. Good luck bidding on my September selection!

Comments - Quiet scene of village life in Harima, with children playing in the street lined with traditional buildings. One boy in a striped red shirt sits atop a pile of logs, while a man strolls along the road further on. Gently rolling tan hills fill the horizon beneath a softly shaded blue sky changing to violet. A charming subject with soft, warm color.
