Japanese Woodblock by Toshi Yoshida ‘Benkei Bridge’ (1941)

Lovely and colorful scene by Toshi Yoshida (1911-1995, son of Hiroshi) titled in both Japanese kanji as “Benkei-bashi” and English as “Benkei Bridge.” Location is one of the popular bridge crossings over the Kamogawa River. Print is margin-dated “Showa 16,” or 1941 and also bears artist’s block-signed signature. Circa likely 1990’s.

Print has never been framed and is in absolute pristine condition. Nicely done “bokashi” (gradation of color) shading to the distant horizon; detailed carving and printing. Great colors. Print is “chuban” size, the image itself measures 6" 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.
