Charity

by Yoshida, Toshi (1911-1995)

Abstract

9.5 x 13.5 in. Woodblock and zinc plate print, mountain landscape with trees in foreground. The actual title Toshi gave this print is "Early Spring in Azumino". It shows an early morning view of a Japanese mountain, forest, and Shinto temple. The zinc plate made it possible to print the very fine dark lines of the trees, and that suggests that a photograph was used as the first stage in doing this. Prints like this were given to Japanese newlyweds in the temple, thus the label on this work "Charity." It implies a gift of love. Toshi was part of the third generation of Yoshida family artists.
