Toshi Yoshida, "Shinjuku"
Pickup currently unavailable
A wonderful scene showing a busy street in the evening in Tokyo's famous Shinjuku district. The yellow cast of the lights is transposed beautifully throughout the composition. Pencil-signed by the artist, this woodblock print comes directly from the Yoshida family estate and has never been been displayed. A rare early-state.
