Japanese Woodblock by Toshi Yoshida ‘Yodo River’ (1942, jikoku)

A beautiful and peaceful river scene by Toshi Yoshida (1911-1995, son of Hiroshi) titled in both Japanese kanji as “Yodogawa” and English as “Yodo River.” Print is margin-dated “Showa 17,” or 1942 and bears a “jikoku” seal (top, left margin) indicating these blocks were self-carved by Toshi himself. Print bears artist’s block-signed signature. Circa likely 1990’s.

Print has never been framed and is in absolute pristine condition. Absolutely wonderful “bokashi” (gradation of color) shading to the sky’s and water’s colors; very lifelike reflections seen in water. Great colors. Print is “chuban” size, the image itself measures 6 5/8 x 9" inches.

Artist Bio: Toshi Yoshida was the eldest son of Hiroshi Yoshida.
Like his father he undertook extensive travels all over the world. His trips took him to the U.S.A., Canada, India,
Africa, Australia and even to Antarctica. Most of his print subjects are focused on landscapes or animals depicted in a realistic style.
After the death of his father Hiroshi Yoshida, he even experimented in abstract art for a while but returned to realistic landscape prints.
