This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Toshi Yoshida was an artist of great breadth and vision. Though known primarily for his woodblock* prints, he was also a remarkable painter and illustrator. His artistic 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.

Toshi was part of the second generation of the Yoshida family to work in the woodblock medium. Both his father, Hiroshi Yoshida, and mother, Fujio Yoshida, were artists and printmakers. Toshi first studied the techniques of woodblock printing in his father's studio, and the subject matter of his earlier prints is reminiscent of Hiroshi's work. However, there were personality and stylistic differences between Toshi and his father, and this comes through in their artwork.

Compared to the misty grandeur of Hiroshi's perfectly composed prints, Toshi's early landscapes are more down-to-earth and straightforward. Toshi was masterful at depicting the charm of ordinary Japanese life, particularly in prints like Supper Waggon, Urayasu, and Matsumoto, to name just a few. Occasionally he depicted famous landmarks, but his prints tend to focus on the human element rather than the monumental.
