One of my favourite woodblock artists and a very nice collection of his works...
A while ago I posted a woodblock print by one Hiroshi Yoshida, the well known Japanese painter and woodblock printer; this artist I found very interesting for several reasons, and so I decided to post some more :)

First - Hiroshi Yoshida traveled a lot - through Asia but also Europe and USA; on his way while travelling he made images of what he saw, and so now we have Taj Mahal, Swiss Alps or - Grand Canyon in traditional Japanese woodblock style. Second - he changed the way woodblock printing was usually done by being intimately involved with all parts of the printing process, sometimes even woodblock cutting itself. Third - he used to do something quite similar to western art of Impressionism - by using the same scene (in this case even the same matrix) and making it either morning or evening for example, by applying different coloures and creating different atmospheric effects. And finally what is as interesting as much as almost unbelievable is that Yoshida family is actually entirely artistic ! Not only that his wife Fujio Yoshida was an artist too, his two sons also, but his son's wives were artists as well, and even a granddaughter Ayomi Yoshida who is now 54 :-) 

These are some of the prints from his travels, starting with India and southeast Asia, over to North America and ending with Europe and Egypt :-)

I've just been to this wonderful exhibition today.. do drop in if you find yourself in Edinburgh. Beautiful Chicken-fat yellow glaze bowls made in Jingdezhen are on display, as well as exquisite ceramics, artefacts, and paintings from the Ming period.
