Yoshida Hiroshi, ‘Evening After Rain’, 1926, Egenolf Gallery Japanese Prints & Drawing

Sunset view of a single sailboat gliding on placid waters as dusk falls. We see lights reflecting against the far shore, and the near shore reflects a pink sunset. There are many subtle variations of lavender, blue and rose. Yoshida was the consummate perfectionist when it came to capturing the exact colors of the scenes that he experienced. This is from the Inland Sea series. Provenance: Purchased directly from the Yoshida Family, this work has never been circulated. Extremely fresh and clean, and cannot be compared with examples that have been passed around for decades and/or framed.

Signature: Signed Hiroshi Yoshida (in pencil) and Yoshida (in brush, in Japanese). Also sealed "jizuri" (self-printed) in upper left margin.

Publisher: Self-published by the artist

Purchased directly from the Yoshida family.
