Toshi Yoshida – 1911 to 1995
Toshi Yoshida was the eldest son of the famous woodblock print artist Hiroshi Yoshida. He travelled extensively all over the world and often with his father. His trips took him to the USA and Canada, India and Africa as well as Australia and Antarctica. Yoshida’s art focused on landscapes and animals which he depicted in a realistic style.
After the death of his father Hiroshi Yoshida he also experimented in abstract art for a while and
eventually returned to creating realistic landscape prints.
