Offered for sale is a beautiful, pencil signed (and thus lifetime impression), Japanese woodblock print by Toshi Yoshida (1911-1995), titled Arab in Bagdad, 1954. In 1952, influenced by the work then being produced by his brother Hodaka, Toshi began producing abstract prints, while at the same time continuing the shin hanga school landscape tradition began by his father, Hiroshi Yoshida. His first series of abstract prints were produced in 1952. In 1954, he did a series of abstract portraits; building on the themes he had been developing.
|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.
