Description
  • Title: Toshi Yoshida, Hummingbird and Fuchsia, Bird and Flower
  • Description: Artist: Toshi Yoshida (1911-1995)
    Title: Hummingbird and Fuchsia
    Date: 20th century (originally printed in 1971)
    Size: 36.8 x 55 cm
    Printed signature.
    Condition: Posthumous. Light creases on the margin. Misprint on the bottom edge of the image.

    One of the most famous Japanese woodblock print artists of the 20th century, Toshi Yoshida was the eldest son of Hiroshi Yoshida (1876-1950), one of the most successful printmakers in the Shin-hanga movement, who specialised in the subject of landscape. During his artistic career, Toshi Yoshida struggled to balance staying loyal to his father and developing his own style, while seeking how to renew the declining Ukiyo-e tradition as a Shin-hanga artist. Although he chose animals as his speciality in 1926, his early works through the 1950s, like 'Tokyo at Night' (1938), adopted landscapes in a style similar to his father’s. However, compared to Hiroshi’s elaborate, subdued and monumental landscape prints, Toshi’s usage of rich and profound colour succeeds in expressing candid traditional Japanese scenery.

    'Hummingbird and Fuchsia' was created in 1971 when Toshi Yoshida taught printmaking techniques at the Mendocino Art Center in the United States. Having traveled extensively, the artist loved depicting various flora and fauna not native to Japan, this print being a fine example. The hummingbirds are depicted in mid-air, their rapidly flapping wings rendered in fine and dynamic strokes, suggesting movement. The colours are bold and vibrant, with many shadows imitating western style painting.; Artist: Toshi Yoshida (1911-1995)
