TOSHI YOSHIDA was the eldest son of Hiroshi Yoshida the renowned shin hanga master. Under his father's influence, Toshi began to learn painting at age 3 and woodblock printing at age 13. In 1925-29 he studied oil painting at Taiheiyo Art School and in 1929 traveled with his father to India and Southeast Asia making sketches for future prints. In 1936 Toshi journeyed to China and Korea, and in 1952-53 he visited the US and Europe where he exhibited works and lectured about woodblock prints. From the early fifties forward Toshi often traveled to the US, Canada, Mexico, Africa, Australia and Antarctica for sketching, exhibitions and lectures. For a few years after the war, he made prints of abstract subjects, but then reverted to prints of scenery and animals. In 1980, Toshi opened the Miasa Cultural Center in Nagano Prefecture where he taught students from many countries, including Carol Jessen, Karyn Young and Ryusei Okamoto.
