Designer: Toshi Yoshida | Publisher: Yoshida | Date: 1938
Description: Toshi Yoshida was a prolific artist who left behind a vast catalogue of images when he passed away in 1995. His family has continued to have his designs re-printed posthumously, so the signature you see in the corner is not a hand-drawn signature by the artist, but was instead printed by the printer. The prints here at Mokuhankan are recent re-printings by our partner Numabe Shinkichi, using the original blocks (You can click his name above for a little more information about him.)
We have also prepared a .pdf file with more information on this interesting print.
Up until his father passed away in 1950, Toshi Yoshida mainly followed in his father’s footsteps by creating landscapes around Japan in the shin-hanga style. These are the prints he is most famous for, but he later experimented with many different subjects and styles. We hope you will enjoy the interesting selection of his works available here.
This is an image from earlier in Yoshida's career, depicting an evening in bustling Shinjuku, Tokyo. Night at Shinjuku is much the same today, but with more modern clothing and taller buildings!
