Hummingbirds and Fuchsia by Toshi Yoshida
A large stunning double Oban size Toshi Yoshida woodblock print. The sky is tinged with pale lavender. Hummingbirds hover in mid air around a fuchsia tree resplendent with blooms of violet and crimson. One can almost hear their wings in motion as they hover around the fuschia blossoms.
The depth of colour has been beautifully rendered in this magnificent woodblock print.
First printed in 1971. This is a later reprint from the original woodblocks by printer Numabe Shinkichi of the Yoshida studio. Signed by the Artist in English in the margin and Japanese within the image (with chop).
The print is in excellent condition with no toning or foxing and it has never been mounted.
The approximate dimensions of the double oban print are 56.5 cm height and 35.5 cm width and the image size is 50.4 cm by 30.4 cm.

His trips took him to the USA and Canada, India, Africa as well as Australia and even to the Antarctica.

eventually returning to creating realistic landscape prints.
