Beautiful view from the Iidabashi or Iida Bridge of boats along the river in the early morning. A willow tree frames the scene at right and buildings line the opposite embankment. At left, a man climbs a steep wooden plank from his boat up to a warehouse above. A lovely print from early in Toshi Yoshida’s career. The woodblock is in very good condition with fully intact margins and press edges to the paper, all toning relegated to the far margins of the woodblock. Nice subtle coloring throughout, solid lines and registry. Minor tape residue on the verso. 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 of 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.
