The Yoshida Family is the preeminent family of Japanese artists producing three generations of woodblock artists who have helped shape the artistic legacy of Japan. In honor of their legacy, the Art Institute of Chicago is hosting an exhibition featuring a selection of their works. More information on the exhibition can be found through the link below.

To see the works we have in our collection by the Yoshida familiy, please visit the Yoshida Family gallery page below. You can see that their styles vary quite a bit, from the abstract nature at the heart of Hodaka & Chizuko's work, to the landscape realism of Hiroshi & Fujio. Toshi, the oldest son of Hirsohi & Fujio, went through an early phase of realism, and after his father's death, began embracing his own unique abstract style.
