Fuji from Nagaoka, Morning, 1962 by Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995)

Original Toshi Yoshida (1911 - 1995) Japanese Woodblock Print
Fuji from Nagaoka, Morning, 1962

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 of Mt. Fuji from Nagaoka in the early morning, the snowy peak bathed in pink and rose tones as the sun floods the sky with warm golden light. The valley below is still shadowed in blue and gray, with rooftops peeking above the row of trees across the foreground. Lovely color and handling of light in this handsome design.
