About

This artwork titled "Rice Field in Suizu" 1951 is an original color woodcut by noted Japanese artist Toshi Yoshida, 1911-1995. It is hand signed and titled in pencil by the artist. The image (block mark) size is 9.5 x 14.5 inches, framed size is 18 x 23.75 inches. Custom framed in a wooden antique silver frame, with off white matting. The artwork is in excellent condition, the frame has very minor restorations, practically invisible. About the artist: Toshi Yoshida was born on July 25, 1911, in Tokyo as the eldest son of the painter and printmaker Hiroshi Yoshida in 1911 in Tokyo. From an early age he learned the art of printmaking and painting from his father and his mother Fujio - an artist herself. Even his grandfather had worked as an artist. Thus the young Toshi grew up in that perfect environment that has the tendency to bring forth a genius. Toshi Yoshida is said to have started drawing at the age of three. And the quality of the child's drawings astonished even his father. His father was a true cosmopolitan and he educated his children in this sense. When Toshi was nineteen years old, his father took him on a sketching trip to India in 1930 and later to Southeast Asia. Toshi had inherited not only his father's talent but also his passion for traveling. The artist later wrote about his experience of this trip to India. It was the complete opposite of a leisure trip. During the day his father tried to make as many sketches and oil paintings as possible. And to lose no time, they took the night trains to get from one place to another. In 1936 Toshi Yoshida stayed in China and Korea. After the end of World War II he traveled all over the world. Even Antarctica was not left out. During these extended travels, Toshi made sketches for new prints, had exhibitions of his art and lectured about woodblock printmaking at different places in the United States and Europe. The artist's favorite subjects were landscapes and animals. And as his father did, Toshi transformed many of his impressions from his travels outside Japan into print designs. Like his father, he liked mountaineering and you can find quite a few mountain landscape prints viewed from a summit. The artist developed his style over the years. As a rule of thumb, his use of colors and large areas is more daring than in the prints of his father. The work of Toshi Yoshida is held in numerous collections and museums including: Sydney Museum, Australia; New York Museum of Modern Art; Boston Museum of Fine Arts; Cincinnati Art Museum; Art Institute of Chicago; Tokyo National Museum of Modern Art; MOA Museum, Atami, Japan; British Museum, London; Portland Art Museum; Paris National Library, National Museum of Australia, Canberra; Seattle Museum of Art; Krakow National Museum; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and others
