'Motion'  d1956

This very modern and contemporary woodblock print was introduced in 1956. Yoshida entitled it 'Motion'.  The death of Tōshi's father in 1950 marked his total break from his past and from naturalism. In 1952, Yoshida began a series of abstract woodcuts, influenced by his brother, Hodaka Yoshida. In 1953, Tōshi traveled to the United States, Mexico, London, and the Near East. He made presentations in thirty museums and galleries in eighteen states. From 1954 to 1973, Yoshida made three hundred nonobjective prints. This print is sealed with Toshi's red seal in the block, along with his name and the print's title in English in the lower margin.  This woodblock is in acid-free environs. The print sight size with full margins is 13.25" x 19", and the frame measures 20" x 26".  It is matted in ivory and framed in a very complementary brown wood grain frame that matches Tōshi's art as if he chose the frame himself. This woodblock print is in fine original condition. Shipping will be based upon your zip code because of its large size.     P705211                      $795.00
