Overview: Up for sale is this excellent and uncharacteristic Japanese woodblock by famed shin hanga artist, Hiroshi Yoshida (1871-1950). Yoshida is the forefather of the shin hanga printing movement in the 1920's -1960's. This woodblock print is "Country Holiday" and depicts a festival in the Kansai region of Japan. It is somewhat unusual for Yoshida, who is mostly known for depicting famous Japanese monuments, shrines and landmarks. This print is block-signed by Yoshida at lower right and titled at lower left. A true masterpiece.

Yoshida is well-listed, with records up to $30,000. His work is featured in numerous museums, including the Japanese National Museum in Tokyo. If you collect woodblocks and you don't have one by Yoshida, then your collection is simply not complete.

Condition: Print is in very good overall condition. minor mat burn in the margins, but should be unnoticeable when framed. Excellent colors and bleed-through.

Measurements: Print measures approximately 15.5 inches high x 10.75 inches wide.
