Original Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995) Japanese Woodblock Print
Camellia and Bird
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 - Lovely view of a bird perched on a branch of a blossoming camellia. The bird's emerald green feathers blend with the rich green foliage, a flash of yellow visible along the edge of the wing. A beautiful, double-oban large format design
