Hiroshi Yoshida (, 1876-1950), Plum Gateway, 1935 a muted copy NOT FADED as the blues go first ! £285 inc Colour woodcut, signed in pencil printed in muted brown colours, Jizuri seal, captioned and signed in pencil at foot, 40 x 27 cm, framed and glazed, Hiroshi Yoshida was a leading figure in the 'shin hanga' (or new print) movement. He worked primarily as a painter until his late forties when he became fascinated with woodblock printing. After working with the Watanabe print shop for several years, Yoshida decided to fund his own workshop. Unlike ukiyo-e artists, he was intimately involved in all parts of the printmaking process. He designed the key blocks, chose the colors for the prints, and supervised the printers. In some cases, he even helped to carve the printing blocks. This was unusual, considering the traditional division of labor between designer, carver, and printer at that time. The majority of Yoshida's prints are richly detailed landscapes, featuring such diverse subjects as the Sphinx, the Taj Mahal, and Mount Rainier. Yoshida travelled frequently, and made sketching and painting trips all around the world. He was an avid mountain climber, and is noted for his depiction of alpine scenes. He also was remarkably skilled at depicting water, with its intricate reflections and complex flow patterns. Yoshida's prints were very popular with Western collectors, and he was one of the only shin hanga artists to sign and title his prints in English.



Ludwig Heinrich, Jungnickel ( 1881-1965). Antelope, coloured lithograph, signed and dated in pencil by the artist, 1925, 370 x 500 mm, framed and glazed £380 Now £225
Indistinct annotation by the artist, 'Thielty fur Weihnachten, 1925'. Jungnickel was a painter and engraver with an innovative and impressionistic style, a contemporary of Gustav Klimt and co-operated with him in decorating the Stoclet Palace in Brussels. (b Wunsiedel, Upper Franconia [now Germany], 22 July 1881; d Vienna, 14 Feb 1965). German painter and printmaker. He was the son of a master joiner. In 1885 he moved with his family to Munich, where he attended the Ludwig Gymnasium and the Kunstgewerbeschule. In 1897 he went on a walking tour, finally arriving in Rome and Naples, where he copied oil paintings and earned a living as a portrait draughtsman. The archaeologist Orazio Maruchi enabled him to gain access to the Vatican collections. In 1898, like many artists, he was attracted to the Secession in Vienna; he enrolled at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste there in 1899 and began studying with Christian Griepenkerl (1839&endash;1916). After only a year, however, he left. To earn a living he worked as a drawing tutor, also designing carpets, fabrics and murals. Among his contemporaries in Vienna, Gustav Klimt particularly impressed him. Stylistically Kolomon  Moser also influenced him, although he never worked in such an intellectual, aesthetic way as the Secession artists.
