Toshi Yoshida - Toshi Yoshida was the son of Hiroshi Yoshida, one of the most famous woodblock print artists of the 20th century. He followed the family tradition, and centuries old Japanese craft, of woodblock printmaking adopting and developing his signature style. His close relationship with his father was instrumental in the pursuit of his art. Together, father and son traveled Japan, and the globe, examining and sketching people and places around them.
Kikuzaka Street - Charming scene of two women in traditional kimono strolling along Kikuzaka Street. The women chat as they pass a curtained doorway into a courtyard with a large pine tree. Behind them, a dog plays about the feet of a man stopping to speak with a woman, his child reaching eagerly for her. Beautiful soft color and detail in this attractive design.
