Description

Published by the artist in 1932.

Print has jizuri sign (self-printed) and pencil signature.

During his numerous travels both in Japan and overseas, Hiroshi Yoshida visited the Middle East. This print depicts an Afghan caravan of camels. Hiroshi and his son Toshi were keen travellers and took inspiration from their exotic excursions. Shin-hanga, the modern way of producing woodblock prints to which this print belongs, has introduced experimentation and innovation to the traditional sphere of woodblock printing. As such, there are two versions of this print available - the day version and the night version.
