SOMETHING ABOUT TOSHI YOSHIDA’S WORK

Toshi Yoshida’s precocious skill as a printmaker was recognized early by his parents, Yoshida Hiroshi and Yoshida Fujio, themselves printmakers. Yoshida Hiroshi, a pioneer of the shin hanga movement, ran a workshop for block printing that Toshi (the eldest son) eventually took over in 1950. Up to that time, he adhered to his father’s representational aesthetic, but soon began to design, self cut, and print abstract images in the sōsaku hanga tradition. Yoshida Toshi went on to write (with Yuki Rei) the influential text Japanese Printmaking: A Handbook of Traditional and Modern Techniques (1964). Volk, Alicia.

MORE ABOUT JAPANESE WOODBLOCK PRINTS
Glossary of Terms Useful for Discussing Woodblock Prints by J. Noel Chiappa

Shin Hanga & Sosaku Hanga
The shin hanga (literally “new prints”) art movement of the early 20th century C.E. in Japan, revitalized traditional ukiyo-e art which had its roots in the 17th through early 19th centuries C.E., maintaining the traditional ukiyo-e collaborative system (hanmoto system) in which the artist, carver, printer and publisher engaged in a division of labor, as opposed to the sōsaku hanga (“creative prints”) movement which advocated the principles of jiga (“self-drawn”), jijoku (“self-carved”) and jizuri (“self-printed”), in which the artist, with the desire of expressing the self, is the sole creator of art.
