Benkei Bridge by Toshi Yoshida. Genuine woodblock print dated Showa 16. Later impression from original blocks. Fine condition. Date and title in left margin. Numabe printer's seal on verso. 11.4 x 8.1 inches. Good texture and ink bleedthrough. 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.
