Title: Treetop (Red)
Treetop (Red). An unusual viewpoint, skipping the trunk and focusing on the branches. Hoshi’s unique techniques using gold and silver leaf and blocks that he finished with a blowtorch have been imitated by others, but the power and beauty of his designs remain unequaled.
Condition: Very good impression, color and condition. Very light mat burn near image.
Literature: Number 279 in “Joichi Hoshi: Catalogue of all Tree Woodblock Prints.”
Seal: Artist’s seal Hoshi
