作品名: Buncho” - Birds
This print was created by Toshi Yoshida (1911-1995) the great artist of shin- and sosaku-hanga. Toshi Yoshida was an artist of great breadth and vision. Known primarily for his woodblock prints, he was also a remarkable painter and illustrator. His style cannot be easily summarized, because he was constantly innovating and pushing the boundaries of the woodblock medium. His work ranges from realistic landscapes to imaginative abstract designs to detailed portraits of animals in their environments. Here is one of his great prints “Buncho” - Birds. This print is from very early Toshi Yoshida prints, published in Showa 2 (1927), bears “jizuri”(self carved and self printed) seal in a middle of right margine, also signed by artist Toshi Yoshida in pencil (not stamped like on later posthumous reprints) on a bottom margin. Extremely rare. I personally see “jizuri” on so early Toshi’s print first time. Large oban size 16" by 10 3/4 "with full margins. Fine impression, excellent color and registration, pristine condition. This print was never framed, mounted or set down.
