Hoshi Jōichi: Evening
Artist: Hoshi Jōichi
A tree seems to be catching the last few rays of the sun as a few of its branches blaze a brilliant red. This tree rises above the other trees surrounding it as dusk overtakes the forest. Comprises an interesting mix of red, bronze and gold colorants. 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.
Literature: Number 317 in “Joichi Hoshi: Catalogue of all Tree Woodblock Prints.”
Seal: Artist’s seal Hoshi
Signature: Joichi Hoshi
