Hodaka Yoshida (1926-1995), well-known artist, his father and mother, Hiroshi Yoshida (1876-1950) and Fujio Yoshida (1887-1987), were both leading Western-style Tokyo artists who worked in oils, watercolors, and (from 1925 on) in Shin Hanga woodblock prints. Instead of having a continuous development, his work moved forward in a series of abrupt stages. For example, his 1955 encounter in Mexico with primitive Pre-Columbian artifacts and architecture radically reoriented his art. A survey of the total range of his work - about 600 prints over 45 years - reveals distinct periods, each having major changes in subject matter, vocabulary, style, and color pallet. His styles, while always his own, drew from Expressionism, Pop, Photorealism, and Color Field abstraction. Broadly speaking most of his prints would be categorized as Sosaku Hanga. Information and prices for his woodblock prints can be found on Internet. The size of this woodblock print is 24 x 14 1/8 inches, which is MUCH LARGER than the tradition Japanese woodblock print. Four borders are intact. The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers on the print. The woodblock print is not attached to any backing paper or cardboard and strong ink bleeding can be seen through the back of the original Japanese Washi paper. The Artist PENCILE SIGNATURE, the title of the print, the LIMITED-NUMBER (16/25) and the date this print was made “1977” are in the bottom border. The light color at the four corners of the print is caused by the four original triangle corner pocket to hold the print in a frame. This woodblock print is EXCELLENT CONDITION.
