Black Panther

by Yoshida, Toshi (1911-1995)

Abstract

Print - woodblock. 7.5" x 10.25"; matted 15" x 17.5". Profile of a black panther with a gold eye and brilliant gold background. By means of exquisite carving, the artist draws attention to the piercing eye and the sheen on the black fur. When he was a youth, Toshi's grandmother urged him to study animals and draw them. He became one of the top wildlife artists in the world in the woodblock medium. He was given a French prize for his series of 12 children's books, taking the young reader on a tour of the African savannah, its flora and fauna. He belongs to the third generation of Yoshida family artists.
