Two Japanese woodblock prints by noted sosaku-hanga artist Toshi Yoshida (Japanese, 1911 - 1995). One is "Cherry Blossoms by the Gate" and the other "White Plum in the Farmyard". Ca. 1951. Pencil signed by Yoshida. Yoshida's approach in these two works is different from traditional woodblock prints in his use of more subtle changes in color and a more neutral palette. Both prints are matted and framed. Not examined out of frames. Excellent condition, good colors. Minor wear on frames. Measurements: 10 1/8" wide by 15 1/4" tall (Cherry Blossoms) and 10 1/2" wide by 15 1/4" tall (White Plum), both as matted. Framed: 16 1/8" wide by 21 1/8" tall by 7/8" deep (Cherry Blossoms), 16 3/4" tall by 21 5/8" wide by 1" deep. Provenance: many pieces in this collection were purchased by the collector from Toshi Yoshida himself. "Cherry Blossoms by the Gate" includes a COA from Ferdinand Roten Galleries.
