Tōshi Yoshida ( July 25, 1911 – July 1, 1995) was a Japanese woodblock print artist. He was the son of the famous shin-hanga printmaker Hiroshi Yoshida. Tōshi Yoshida started his career working under his father, who dictated his working style. Tōshi initially started making kacho-e or wildlife prints to distinguish his work from his father's. By the 1930s, however, he was producing landscapes similar to his father's. After his Hiroshi's death in 1950, Tōshi began creating abstract prints in the sōsaku-hanga or creative style. From 1954 to 1973, Yoshida made three hundred abstract prints. In 1971, Yoshida returned to producing kacho-e prints again. He continued to work on this subject matter until his death in 1995.
